Neowin Interviews Ben Goodger

Saturday January 24th, 2004

Mr magoo of writes in: "It's not often that we at Neowin get to talk to someone who really is pioneering a new look on the internet, so it was a real surprise when Ben Goodger, chief developer of Mozilla Firebird, accepted our invitation to have a quick chat about his job, and the great program that is Mozilla Firebird.

"Asides from a brief history of the browser, we've got Ben talking about what's happening to Firebird at the moment, why Internet Explorer users should switch, and much much more."

Yes, but the fact is that, although things are improving, upwards of 90% of the sites out there are using broken and/or proprietary code, and upwards of 90% of users are using IE on Windows. Standards compliance is important to geeks and (one hopes) to web developers. Most users don't care how the browser works or how the site is written, as long as they work together.
