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.

100 megs for a full install? I have to see this for maybe I won't...I remember earlier that MS claimed IE5 will be the smallest browser they've ever made. Anyway, NS4 was hurt because it came out before IE4 so I don't understand why NS5 will be hurt if IE5 comes first. 100 megs...sheesh! Who would want to dload that?
