Mozilla Shines in Latest Standards Evaluation

Tuesday November 16th, 1999

In David Baron's latest evaluation of browser CSS conformance, Mozilla is in the lead, by a wide margin. When you see the scores at the bottom of the CSS results table, in which Mozilla gets a 38 out of 104, realize that this is because CSS2 conformance is evaluated as well (CSS2 is not promised for the first release of Mozilla). In comparison, Opera 3.60 gets a 2.5, and IE5 garners a -8.5.

UPDATE: The XML information that I was given does not in fact apply to the parser used in Mozilla. Mozilla uses expat by James Clark, and the XML parser reviewed at was XP, a Java-based XML parser also by James Clark. Sorry for any confusion. My feeling is that expat is probably a better XML parser than XP, since it's been around longer, but we won't know until we see concrete results.

Everyone knows Moz Classic code sucks. It's the whole reason they scrapped it to start new code. IE5 is compared to Moz because Moz is NS5, and thus the two are on the same tier. By your argument they should include IE4, too.
