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?

A. I hate HTML mail...even more reason to ditch it (no offense, but it just screws up things).

B. I believe that you won't get any advanced features (like css) until you can clean up the mess that it puts out right now. (I've never seen such use of <font> tags in my life except for Composer).

C. It's just so far behind the rest of the project, it is not worth the effort. As I said before, Composer was the last thing to be finished in Communicator, and in many peoples minds, it is not finished. And from what we are seeing currenly, it looks as dead as Netcaster, execpt its still in Communicator.

Those are my feelings. It would be cool to here from someone at Netscape about Composer and its status.
