Jesse Berst on Mozilla

Tuesday May 4th, 1999

Jesse Berst has an article on Open Source, in which he devotes a sentence to Mozilla. However, his thoughts seem to have come directly from Jamie Zawinski (like the thoughts of so many other journalists recently).

If you have the inclination, pick up a copy of "Breaking The News: How The Media Undermine American Democracy" for an interesting take on why American journalism has gone so wrong. Many of the ideas in the book can easily be applied to the tech journalism industry as well.

Thanks to Aleks Zawisza for the news.

That's all fine and dandy, however there is a rapidly growing number of web developers out there that have made it clear to both major browser makers that they WILL NOT implement proprietary tags and only code to standards.

From where I'm sitting it looks like Mozilla will be the worlds first 100% standards compliant browser ever.

Web developers around the world, of course, will druel over this and be quite happy... understandably so, I might ad.

This in turn will *force* MS to adhere to W3C standards.
