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?

Ray, so you're saying Office 2000 will switch from the proprietary Word format to CSS+HTML and now you're saying we shouldn't support open standards for the vector stuff? If we listened to you earlier we probably would be using Word format instead of HTML+CSS. Now that MS is going 2/3 of the way, might as well push them for the remaing 1/3
