Another Article Regarding Mozilla's "Reawakening"

Another article on Gecko's burgeoning acceptance...

Mpt writes, "PCWorld On-line has an article on Gecko. Trouble is, it's full of simple mistakes: `Gecko will power the Netcenter Web site' (eh?); `Netscape officials are tight-lipped about specific Gecko features' (really? I thought Gecko was open-source!); `So far, industry leaders haven't embraced Gecko' (industry leaders? are PCWorld expecting Microsoft to use it, or something?); and last but not least, `NeoPlanet also led development of an ActiveX control ...' (oh dear, not that again).

I've written to PCWorld suggesting that they, ah, improve the truth quotient in the article -- but I'm not holding my breath."

Well, they've fixed all my complaints, although I'm still bemused by their saying that NeoPlanet has `assumed development' of the ActiveX control. (Is this right, Adam?)

Ah well. My work here is done ... time to get back to hacking on my entry in the throbber competition, I guess. :-)
