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.

Was Just Reading the ZD-Net Tripe....

I find it interesting that they're compairing a beta of IE's next FULL version release with an incrimental upgrade version of Netscape (hense the nuber greater than 0 to the right of th period) and then blasting Netscape for not adding enough changes and new features.

And how come, if Netscape changing IE's default home page is a "dirty trick", why is completely replacing half of the Windows front end "a big improvement"
