Webreference Article on IE5 and Mozilla

Tuesday April 27th, 1999 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.

Alfonzo,you don't understand. The way MSis heading rightnowis that it will be very hard to go to 100% standards in their release 5.x timeframe. 1) they'd have todrop all their new non-standard stuff 2) they'd have to drop all the MS sites out there 3) the last thing they want todo is use mozilla code and abide by the MPL (letalone the embarassment that MS just can't do the job) 4) the way they're going with XSL means they won't even get standards right in the future SoMS can't get us there. However, a good strategy is to encourage development of many commercial mozilla based browsers such as Netscape 5 (of course!) AOL 5 (which will dump rainmaker) ICQ, Neoplanet...and let's see how many other people we can get to make browsers out of mozilla
