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?

Alan Baratz doesn't know what he is talking about. Actually, none of these Sun middle management people have a clue of what they are talking about. A bunch of them claimed that Netscape was basing its future browser developments on Java when the deal was originally announced...
