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.

NOTE: I'm not an influencial WaSP person at all. The problem I see with the WSP's aproach is that there will never be a commercial browser that can support W3C specs. Microsoft is too concerned about its clients that use proprietary intranet apps, and Netscape has its problems, too. The only way a browser which truly reflects the spirit of the web could ever be produced is if either the Mozilla project continued, or another project spun off from Mozilla, and released under the GPL. Don't be discouraged, hackers of the Mozilla project! Keep fighting the good fight! :)
