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.

At the beginning o fthe year it was before summer. A month or two later it was in summer. And now it by the end of the year.

I don't really mind too much because I use the nightly builds a lot of the time. I'm guessing within a month i'll be using them more than Netscape 4.7 or whatever release they have by then.
