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.

I think, it is plain dishonest to say that IE is not a better browser than NS.

I've switched simply because I got tired of crashes. In addition, IE's implementation of DOM, CSS and HTML 4.0 is simply superior, so the pages viewed in it are far richer in functionality.

The only NS feature that I now rate above IE's is its integration with the Mail & News client. Once the app is loaded, it is fast.

As far as IE security goes, it has never really affected me personally or any company I have ever worked for. I know it affected others, but we are talking about usability virtues here.
