The New IE5 Feature Set...
Wednesday November 4th, 1998
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?
#8 Lacks the killer feature.. crossplatform support.

Curiosity and one crash too many made me try and install IE 4 (final) on solaris a few weeks back.
BIG mistake... the first time I tried to run it, it locked on startup when it tried to load the fonts and totally froze my machine to the extent I couldn't even telnet in!!!
/bin/rm -rf Explorer/
The mac version is good, but it isn't feature complete in comparison with the PC version.
Result I use netscape on all my machines (Solaris, Linux, Mac, PC). Without decent crossplatform support IE is simply not an option with me.
