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.

Well, fortunately or unfortunately, Netscape/AOL can add whatever feature they like to the finished product. So they very well may be adding said functionality behind closed doors, or, atleast prototyping it.
