IE5 Preview at

Wednesday March 17th, 1999

So, news about IE5 is beginning to trickle out, and it's beginning to look a lot like Mozilla. The equivalent of a "What's Related" button has been added as well as a "Web Accessories" feature that we got a glimpse of last year with Mozilla's configurable chrome. No indication of standards compliance (still). My latest bet is that IE5 won't even be HTML4 compliant, much less CSS1 compliant.

IE5 is supposed to be released tomorrow. I'd be interested in knowing the download sizes for the different installs. Feel free to submit info to us tomorrow, if you're brave enough to download it.

I spoke of putting frames into Composer because I didn't think I needed to drone of a list of everything it doesn't have, and because frames are one of the most basic advanced features--and one of the most necessary. nowhere did I say that the frames should be the only thing added to composer--I figured those reading would add the rest of the missing features with their minds. It does happen in some people.

Zontar is right, VB is programming for Windows only and once "write once run anywhere" becomes a reality, it will be a useless language because no one will have to program for OSs any more. Pity.
