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.

Not a very fair comparison. It is true that NS4 sucks, but with IE being bundled with the OS ( not just some OEM system ), it didn't have a chance to be seen at all. I mean most IE users today have not even tried NS4.

On my system I had both browsers crashing alot until recently ( when both seem to have decided to play nice, after many updates and reinstalls and whatnot ). NS4 is buggy, and so is IE. I use NS4 because I'm used to it, and I use IE because it came on my system, not because either of them crash less.
