The New IE5 Feature Set...

Wednesday November 4th, 1998

George Giannukos writes in, "This article [a CNet article at Netscape's TechNews site] lists many of the new features that will be in IE5. Some very interesting ones I must say."

Sounds like MS is taking some moves from the Mozilla playbook. Who wants to place a wager on which group's solutions are more proprietary?

Also, maybe someone can answer a question for me. Why is it that whenever CNet does an article about Netscape, they always seem to have a MS spin doctor's words to finish out the article? Why does this article have no spin from the Netscape camp?

Um, VML is a joke, not a standard. SVG, based on the PGML proposal from Netscape, Sun, IBM and others is the W3C standards currently under development. Sure, the MS VML people are participating, but VML as a format is dead. Everything in this space will be built using SVG.
