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!

I think one thing this guy fails to realize is that by releasing the code to the web it is my opinion Netscape/Mozilla has really given the browser eternal life. As long as there are people wanting to tinker it will become better and better. A good example, Linux. As far as developers using IE for their developing needs all I have to say is I hope they have a big hard drive to keep downloading all those security patches Microsoft keeps coming out with every week.

By the way if the release of Netscape 5.0 is next month can I use smart update to upgrade my Mozilla M10 release?????? HAHA
