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!"

Lately I've been using Netscape 4.6 because it's not Micro$oft not because it's better than IE. IE has a Sherlock button, it lets you resume interrupted downloads and it supports the Mac feel in other ways such as it's use of drag and drop text copying (which Netscape STILL doesn't have). Come on and at least address the three things I just mentioned PLEASE. For now people use Netscape cos it's not Micro$oft, not because Netscape is better. IE is even faster than Netscape. Ever hit the back button? On IE the page appears instantly, on Netscape it takes forever. The current Netscape blows compared to IE. I want Netscape to win so I hope they make it more Mac-like. Internet Explorer for the Mac may be the single quality product that Micro$oft has ever produced. Mozilla for Mac needs: - Drag and drop text editing - A Sherlock button - Resumable downloads John
