MozillaZine

Request From MZ

Monday September 13th, 1999

There has been mention in a previous forum that IE's rendering engine on the Mac (Tasman) utilizes Mozilla code. However, no proof was given of this (and we find it hard to believe, to tell you the truth). We're interested in knowing one way or another, so if someone could provide more information, we'd appreciate it. Until then we'll view this as nothing more than rumour.

All I am suggesting is that we should not get over excited about this (maybe you haven't read all the other talkbacks under the other article?) until MS actually releases something for real instead of just a showcase of something they are working on. You are right, you should be welcoming microsoft with open arms if they want to use mozilla source, for then they would be using the same codebase and same standards compliant base as netscape will. But, people ARE jumping to conclusions, it's a god damn witch hunt, and that I don't believe that's helpful or projects a good image to other development shops that may want to use raptor for non-web related applications. But hey, what do I know.
