Salon Magazine on Andreesen's Departure and Mozilla

Wednesday September 15th, 1999

Salon Magazine's article "Goodbye, Internet poster boy" discusses Marc Andreesen's departure from AOL, and along the way the author decides to take some potshots at Mozilla.

His opinions seem culled entirely from articles in the mainstream press, including CNet's article on the "competition" between Robert Ginda's IRC client for Mozilla and AOL's Instant Messenger. Cut-and-paste journalism at its finest. Why search out your own truth when there are so many versions just a Ctrl-V away?

Thanks to Hervé Renault for the news.

mozilla has a scope problem.

the reason it it considered effectively dead is because it is going to be months before it has anything resembling a usable browser. and the biggest reason for the slow going is its mistakes not only in developing instant messaging but in developing similarly non-browsing-related client software such as mail, news and editing.

they should immediately halt all development activities that are not related to browsing (email, news and editor at a minimum) and get some focus on getting a high performance, standards-compliant and bug-free BROWSER into the marketplace.
