Netscape Makes Official NGLayout Announcement!!
Tuesday November 10th, 1998
Matthew Thomas, Joel Caris, and Asa Dotzler wrote in about the official Netscape press release regarding NGLayout. Matthew writes, "Netscape has made an official press release announcing what they call `NGT' (Next Generation Technology), which is a combination of NGLayout and configurable chrome. This was subsequently reported by ZDNet, Wired, and TechWeb (among others, no doubt). There are two interesting points here: (1) you can always count on a company to come up with a dumb-sounding name for a cool technology; (2) if you want to hear about something TWO WEEKS before the mainstream media report it, read MozillaZine! :-)"
I can't believe I was away and missed the news! DRAT! :(

NGT sounds like a cool name for a layout engine. Much better than buttmonkey or NG 2000 (ala Microsoft) Mozilla on a floppy? That should make the folks at Opera very nervous.
