ZDNet on AOL/Mozilla

Thursday October 14th, 1999

Tony Gorman has this news:

"ZDNet's Devhead column has a very positive article ["America Online: A Web Developer's Best Friend. Can AOL Adapt?"] on Mozilla and standards support. It starts of with a no holds barred swipe at Netscape which - in my opinion - is almost entirely accurate and consequently deserved. It then moves on to talk about Mozilla in perhaps the most positive terms I have ever read. It talks about the XUL initiative as being revolutionary and praises the efforts to make the lizard "almost flawless" in its support for standards. While the point it is making is to do with AOL's attempts to adapt to the market, it raises Mozilla's role in this to being central, which can only be a good thing."

#4 I hope this is contagious

I just hope that writing positive (or at least fair) articles catches on quickly in the media after the wave of those negative ones.

That ZDNet article IS interesting, it has points that I would have never thought about before.
