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 happen to know a lot of people who use some form of Unix at home, particularily Linux, as well as at work or school. And I use a Mac at work since Macs are pretty well known for graphics and publishing. Then when I go home I have to use a crappy ass Windoze machine that crashes every few hours.

The point is, Unix and Mac users are a minority compared to Windoze but are still important to a lot of people who won't go away. And if Mozilla were to succeed there needs to be verions of it for non-PC users instead of giving them the short end of the stick.
