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.

Well, Kovu, I hate to burst your bubble but you're going to have to compare Mozilla 5 with IE6 when all is said and done. The same 'tier' is irrelevant when applied across different companies. I know that some here may think that IE5 is the last version of IE... but let's be realistic shall we?
