New Music, and IE News

Monday February 22nd, 1999

More music to code by this week - just click the link at right. Also, news that Microsoft has started its "Countdown to Internet Explorer 5". No news on their site regarding IE5 standards compliance; curiously, that's the one enhancement that they really don't address. Will they have a complete CSS1 implementation? My guess: Microsoft is going to play up UI enhancements, downplay standards compliance (because they won't be 100% compliant even with CSS1). When confronted regarding compliance, they will, with spin a dervish would envy, manage to place the blame squarely on Netscape for *IE* not being CSS1 compliant. If you recall, they did just that only four months ago.

I've downloaded several of the nightly Mozilla builds and been very impressed - good progress. M$ will be running scared of Mozilla - developed by the same process (open-source) that gave us Perl, Python and other such gems. M$ have nothing that comes remotely close .... :-) . The final version of Mozilla will make a certain other browser look like an Edsel ..... :-)
