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!

The MS Trial is basically over now. There is no need to prove that Microsoft has "competition" anymore.

Mozilla, Linux, whatever else Jesse Berst has had at least sort-of positive things to say about during the trial was just to help MS' defense. Now that the trial is over, don't expect to see any more positive articles about non-Microsoft innovations.

Anyone who couldn't see that happening was just plain naive.
