Webreference Article on IE5 and Mozilla

Tuesday April 27th, 1999

Webreference.com has a new article online, "Internet Explorer 5.0: With Style, Finally?", which details the shortcomings of IE5. If you're not interested in reading about IE5, skip ahead to page 7 of the article, which gives an approving nod to Mozilla. Interesting article, although I wish the author had elaborated on his allusion to bugs in the CSS parser of IE5.

Thanks to Kevin Duffy and Christophe Pennequin for the news.

Doesn't MS own the patent for CSS, yet they haven't gotten it right. And namespaces were created by them fore the W3C but it handles them wrong. I just don't see how you can make the standard yet implement it poorly.

Standards complience alone with make people switch. Users always want the best thing and whena product says it has full CSS1, HTL 4.0, XML, and blah ... People are going to say it has all of that, I must have it even if I don't use it. MMX was like that everyone wanted it even though hardly anyone uses it.
