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.

To arielb:

MS wouldn't have to drop any non-standard features to comply with the standards. As long as they adhered to the standards they can include their own extensions... and intranets that standardize on IE can implement those extensions to their hearts content.

This is all something that is going to take a long time... regardless of who does what.

Like I said before, if IE 5 was 100% standards compliant it would mean nothing right now... pure and simple.

Do you have any idea the installed base of NS 3/4 and IE 3/4 users all over the world?

This whole 'standards' ideal is going to take a lot of time and hard work.
