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!"

It really wouldn't make sense for Apple not to ship Communicator 5.0 with Mac OS X, since most Mac users love Communicator (Internet Explorer may have millions of features, but it doesn't make up for it's lack of speed on anything not Windows).

iCab might have a future, but it costs money, and it doesn't support populuar internet standards (like JavaScript).

Netscape products are so dominant on anything non-Windows, it is amazing. Some Mac sites report from 80 to 95% are all from Netscape Communicator. That's funny, because Apple installs Internet Explorer also with every Mac since Internet Explorer 2.0.

I personaly like Netscape Communicator, because it's so cross platform. I love being able to use the same browser if I am using Linux/PPC or Mac OS. (I mean, when are we going to see a Linux x86 version of Internet Explorer, much less and Linux/PPC version). Mozilla is great news for everybody.

Keep the great work up everybody;
