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!

Sorry, but IE5 has better support for many CSS features than Netscape 4.x . What's wrong with IE5 is as said above, too many proprietary features. When Mozilla comes out, it will be superior to any IE browser; but as of right now, IE5 is a better browser than Netscape 4.7. Though it's taking a very long time to finish M/G, the final product will leap ahead of IE.
