Interesting Alan Baratz Quote

Thursday March 11th, 1999

Reader Ben Marklein writes in with an interesting quote from Alan Baratz of Javasoft. In a piece at regarding Sun's new application server NetDynamics 5, Baratz mentioned that "the three companies [Sun, AOL, and Netscape] will also integrate their browser technologies into one." He also stated that "One of the goals is to bring the initiatives together and bring an XML-based browser with first-class Java 2 support... And as time goes by, the browser will be built more and more with Java".

Anyone willing to confirm this?

I'm sure AOL wants to use at least Gecko. Have not heard of anyone at Netscape trying (or even wanting) to build parts of Mozilla out of Java.

Of course that doesn't mean there isn't someone somewhere trying it, or an exec making plans...
