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!

Ridiculous articles like this lead people (many from this site) to read Jesse's vitriol. One ad impression. Then, you read someone's response. Impression #2. Then, there's a link from a talkback here to a talkback there. Impression #3. ZDNet, and indirectly Jesse himself, are laughing all the way to the bank.

Just give yourself a quick & simple rule, as I've done: don't read Jesse Burst. He's alarmist, often incorrect, and a total waste of time. We should be spending our time learning the ins and outs of Moz, and helping to find bugs. He'll eat his own words, eventually.
