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.

You hit the nail on the head you simply can't integrate things closely with the OS and not have security problems. Isn't the whole principle of NT/Windows 2000 isolation so that if one thing crashes nothing else does. What is Mircosoft doing trying to make things less stable, sure it make things slightly faster but it isn't worth it. I use both IE and Netscape on my computer. When netscape crashes I lose 20 seconds that it takes to reload and just use the history to get back to what I was doing. When IE crashes everything gets unstable or requires a couple of Ctrl-Atl-Del s and a 2 min restart. It is just not worth it so I stick to NS most of the time the only reason I have IE is because I have to and I need to see what it will look like (because I don't know what the hell it does without standards) for the wbepages I write.
