CNet On Communicator 5.0 Delay

Wednesday October 6th, 1999

A number of people sent in links to this news of Communicator 5.0's "delay" at CNet.

According to CNet's Paul Festa, who seems unable or unwilling to write a positive Netscape piece, "Netscape is far behind its main browser competitor, Microsoft, in two areas where it once led: technology and market share. Although it commanded about 80 percent of the desktop browser market just a few years ago, Netscape is now down to a minority position." Paul goes on to cite anonymous sources who provided him with information on XUL and a new email/IM hybrid scheme.

Actually, all the Tech News for Netcenter comes from News.com which is part of CNET. And I think that Paul Allen is an investor in CNET, I don't know about MS. I don't think MS is sleeping with CNET anymore than AOL/Netscape is. I think this is just one "journalist's" opinion.
