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!

While "we" might not regard ZDnet or C|net to be factual sources of information, many other people do. The sad truth is that we are outnumbered by "them", and "they" are not smart enough to separate the truth from the crap like this article.

I'm afraid that the damage has been done and unless this jackass publishes a formal apology/correction in his headlining editorial "they" are never going to know any different.

Just as a matter of fact, I used the talkback to rip on this jerk. I am not currently developing for Mozilla, but I have been following it since the start and trying to find as many bugs as I can. It pisses me off when jerkoffs write stuff like this without taking the time to do a little research and furthermore don't back up what they say with some side-by-side comparisons.
