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.

"Horsefeathers. No, it didn't help matters that Microsoft was able to bundle IE with Windows, but that was merely the icing on the cake."

That's just gibberish. Tell that to the judge that BROKE THE FUCKERS UP.

"IE beat Navigator because IE was by FAR the superior product."

Also total crap. IE may be a bit better than 4.x now, but that's because 4.x is two years old. I use 4.x still over IE, cause THEY'RE NOT THAT DIFFERENT but IE is a security nightmare. 4.x doesn't crash on my machine, much less "far more often." And IE is only faster because it's integrated with Windows. DUH!

"As long as Netscape pretends that what happened to Navigator was anything other than a massive engineering and management failure on their part,"

If you think that, get off the channel, quite honestly. You obviously have no clue what Mozilla has accomplished in the last two years, nor any inkling of its potential as a Web application platform. Your loss.
