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.

Don't know if you are doing this yet but I suggest the when the NG Layout Engine is finished the situation should be that the browser or the core engine should be able to update itself or check for a new update every month or so. The browser should download a new version of itself, install itself etc. That way we take the installation process from all those lame humans whose default browser is still IE2 or still think the version three browsers are good enough. It has to be quick, seamless and tranparent. Also the browser should timeout after a year of installation to force an upgrade.
