Mozilla Plug-in API Now Online

Thursday September 16th, 1999

The Plug-in API spec is now online, so if you are interested in creating a new plugin within the new spec, or upgrading an old plugin to take advantage of the new APIs, be sure to check it out. Also important to note is that upgrading does not come at the expense of backwards compatibility.

There's also a curious reference to "Netscape Navigator 2000". Please, say it ain't so!

Thanks to Willy Wonka for the news.

#15 Netscape 2000 sounds better than 5

I think that Netscape 2000 or Millenium is a good name for Mozilla. Netscape should have named 4.5 as 5.0, now that Netscape has added so many features yet everyone still think that IE is a generation ahead...

Netscape 2000 would sound like Netscape has leapfroged IE5, which is actually true. Plus, Microsoft is likely to name the next IE as IE 2000. So it'd be good for Netscape to "get there" ahead of Microsoft.
