Clearing Up Mozilla's Status

Friday July 2nd, 1999

David Polberger has some good news from people who were dismayed by comments from Alan Baratz of Sun regarding Mozilla's future.

David writes, "... just posted this news item to its main page [click the link to read the full text of the comment]:

"...Our contributors and staff are responsible for the management of all browser development. As a major contributor, AOL completely supports our efforts... We would like to stress that Sun was not speaking for or for AOL."

This is good news. I got the impression that Alan B. was speaking for himself more than any official position. Anyway, I thought that Sun was only responsible for Netscape's server efforts, not their client efforts...

Even if AOL had a contract with MS, they could still make their client work unofficially with the Mozilla control :)

Seriously though, the client software is just half of the problem. I expect most of their server side stuff needs updating too to serve out non-IE specific HTML.
