Should Corporations Standardize On One Browser?

Thursday May 20th, 1999

Maximum Overlord has some interesting news:

"I've just received from Gartner group an interesting little article... they suggest it's in a company's best interest *NOT* to standardize on one browser throughout the enterprise."

During the last few years Windows programming has really gone to hell. You can find e-mail checkers that are 2 Mb zip-files and other software that requires IE to send registration data or to view on web page.

The rule of thumb is to never use any components whose size is a lot bigger than the function it does in your code. The second rule is to not build your sw to require other software as long as it is possible.
