Mozilla Dispenses with Old, Proprietary DOM

Monday June 14th, 1999

The Mozilla team has decided to forgo backwards compatibility with Netscape's proprietary DOM so they can throw their full efforts behind proper DOM Level 1 support for Mozilla's first release. Click here to read more at, or here to read the thread from the newsgroup.

Thanks to Kovu for the news.

Bruce, what anon is saying is that the decision was a no-brainer. There's no point in keeping Netscape's proprietary DOM since it takes resources away from doing better things. I agree with this. On the other hand it's always hard to tell those who are used to Netscapisms that there is a better standards compliant way.

In response to the other anon post, plese read the newsgroup article I linked to and the thread.
