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!

Jesse Berst is a blustering windbag with zero credibility. Anyone who has read more than a half a dozen of his "Anchordesk" articles could tell you that.

He gives the strong impression of being a PR whore - ignorantly and compliantly taking it from whatever the latest press release to appear in front of him says.

The Mozilla article is just the latest of articles to reveal the depths of his ignorance.

Frankly, if I were ZD I would be embarrassed to be associated with him. Perhaps they keep him on to generate some extra revenue through the hits that his ill-informed blather produces?
