Full Article Attached Astounding Comments From the WSP

Thursday July 20th, 2000

The WSP (Web Standards Project) now states that it is interested in released products more than compliance, and has released one of the most astounding pieces of work I have seen come out of their office.

The WaSP, a pseudonym which speaks for the whole WSP (or at least its leaders) has written a piece taking Netscape to task for failing to produce a browser in the allotted time limit. Click "Full Article..." below to read my response. For the record, I am not an employee of Netscape.

Mozilla is doing to work of 8+ years in two years. Once it is out I think a large part of the market share will come back, these are the days of 1+ GB mp3 collections if it turns out better than IE in the end people will download an 8 MB browser. The comment about 'if we had know it would take 2 years...' if you had known what would you have done switched to IE start another browser, what absoutly nuts. If you don't like how long it is taking use the thing and help. It is 8 years work in 2, and the parent company is not intested in useing it in AOL until the Antitrust action is done hence the lack of "effort" plus who the #*$& said this is Netscapes browser it is Open source if anyone wants to help they can.
