Reader Opinion: Mozilla Needs Netscape
Tuesday August 10th, 1999
Eric Murphy, MozillaZine member and regular contributor in our forums, has written an opinion piece on the Netscape/mozilla.org situation. To read it, click Full Article below.
Eric: Totally with you on this one!
With all the work that MOZILLA has done on the gecko engine, it desirves a fair boost into the market.
Weather it hit's or not, (I'm positive it will) they still desirve at least that much for what they have done!
I really think Communicator 5 can be a turn around point for Netscape. Not to mention a big boost in Stock value for AOL!!
BUT, this will only happen if they do what you have noted above! IE sucks, and yet is big now because microsoft has always been good at marketing there software. Even when version 3.0/crap was out, they still did a good job of advertising.. Netscape need to follow them in that ONE ascpect.
I'm sure M will be popular with software vendors who want there programs "Web ready".
Hands getting shaking just thinking about the possibilities =)
