Jesse Berst Says that Communicator Won't Support XML!!!

Wednesday November 10th, 1999

Joel Caris writes in with the latest Berst burst of wisdom. Jesse Berst's new article at ZDNet's AnchorDesk is filled with such pearls as, "It now expects to ship beta of the 5.0 version of its browser suite next month... [a]nd without support for key Web technologies such as XML that IT managers and Web developers can get from IE."

Damn. And I was under the impression that the entire Mozilla application required XML to power its user-interface, and that it's XML support throughout the application was unparalleled. Silly me.

Be sure to vote in the poll on the article's page!

I was under the impression that IE didn't even support XML properly (am I right? someone correct me if I am..) Maybe he means Mozilla won't support IE's buggy implementation? ;)

This is the single most incompetent Netscape/Mozilla piece of the year. (With the exception of various ClieNTServer News articles)

While other pieces written are just doom gloom pieces based on little research, this piece is based on perhaps a *negative* amount of information about Mozilla! Even our CNet hero Paul Festa manages to acknowledge XUL now and then.

I think its about time we redefined the stupidity benchmarks to take this new article into account.
