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.

Wake up guys - TIME TO MARKET. Microsoft has built a multibillion dollar empire by marketing at best average products and obliterating the independents with far superior products. If Mozilla is not ready soon after MS IE 5.0 rollout - you can brag about superior standards support forever and a day there will be nobody to listen.
