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.

#7 new email/IM hybrid scheme?

Sounds like he got his sources mixed up..sounds like some "integration scheme" Microsoft would of thought up to get people to use it's MSN Messenger. Haven't MS already announced that MSN Messenger is going to be linked with Hotmail, Outlook, etc.? Just like they have "integrated" Hotmail and Outlook.

Communicator already has IM capabilities it's the Cntrl 9 button. :)
