CNET Chimes In, States IRC Will Compete With Instant Messenger

Thursday September 9th, 1999's Paul Festa has an article regarding the new IRC and Jabber clients in development, and claims that the IRC will be "in direct competition with AOL's own messaging software", although it's not clear how that would happen. The article also states that Mozilla's beta will be occurring in 4 weeks, which is off by about a 3 to 4 weeks, according to a news post that came out today. There's still a lot of work to be done, but they are making good progress.

Thanks to Kovu for the news.

#2 A relatively positive article for a change!

Well, aside from the usual "they shouldn't be wasting time on add-ons" rubbish, this was the first relatively optimistic article I've seen from a place like CNet in a while on mozilla. Most of the goodness came from the quotes from Mike Shaver and Rob Ginda though ;)
