Whatever Became of Composer?

Saturday September 19th, 1998

On a slow news Saturday, Jason Kersey, the MozBin Admin, writes in with some questions for us. Jason asks, "What's happened to Composer? Is it dead? It seems that is has not changed since 4.0. Its toolbars remain the same and nothing has been added. Should composer be kept?"

What do you think?

Yes, I agree with what most have said. Composer was behind during all the developement of 4.0, and is still behind. It has basically been forgotten and is now just dead weight in my opinion. It's HTML layout is poor, and I'm sorry to say that Microsoft's own program is 1000 times better than Composer. It definatly should be an addon similar to what Netcaster was, but not be installed with Communicator by default. Long live Notepad!
