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.
The editor is required for the browsing engine. They use the editor text widget to render forms in the browser with CSS capabilities, because native widgets can't handle it.
Actually, the mail/news client has less open bugs, at least as far as memory leaks go, than the browser team does. Maybe they should stop all development on the browser and go for a kickass mail/news client.
(FYI: I'm being facetious on that last thing.)
