Communicator to Ship with Mac OS X

Thursday July 8th, 1999

Waldo has this great news for Macintosh Mozilla users. Waldo writes, "According to MacOSRumors, 'OS X is expected to ship with at least one Web browser (Internet Explorer if Microsoft ports it, Communicator 5 for certain, as well as a trial version of OmniWeb 3.0 quite likely)'.

Cool! Mozilla shipping w/every new Mac 'for certain'. I like it!"

The patent lawsuits of Apple vs. Microsoft weren't dropped. Microsoft paid an undisclosed sum of money to settle the dispute as part of the investment deal.

It seems to me that IE on a Mac is just another piece of software which can be uninstalled or not used. IE on a Windows machine however is an integral part of the OS which requires a painful process to remove and it cripples the OS when you do so. So I think that IE wont stand in the way of Mozilla's success on Mac machines.
