Chris Blizzard Interview at Red Hat

Monday July 15th, 2002

Red Hat has a rather humourous interview with Chris Blizzard on their website. The interview covers such diverse subjects as why Mozilla 1.0 is important, how Chris got involved with the project and how it's possible to read both The Economist and The Nation each week.

Thanks to Patrick for the tip.

"Blizzard's statement about IE being developed only for Windows is correct."

Even if that was what he said, it would still be wrong.

According to the article though, what he actually said though was that IE was only available for Windows. However IE is available for other platforms.

I am really tired of this discussion though. It is pointless. Chris is a good guy who made an erroneous statement in an interview. It is not a big deal.

"IE is so different in the standards it supports on different platforms. IE really only runs all the technologies and standards well on IE for Windows."

Last time I checked, IE for the Mac had better support for W3C standards than the Windows version of IE.

"You might argue wether IE is better on Windows or the Mac, but the fact remains that Mac IE is crippled and chocks because of technologies Moicrosoft has 'purposefully' left out of the Mac version."

Microsoft has left support for certain Microsoft proprietary technologies out of IE for Mac. IMO, that is a good thing.
