Netscape Ruined The Web
from the did-they? dept
Kelly McNeill writes “How is Microsoft’s introduction of IE specific tags different than Netscape’s introduction of Netscape only tags? We went through the Netscape World Wide Web version 1, 2 and 3 without people complaining much, is it just that people hate Microsoft that much?” An interesting argument blaming Netscape for not playing by the rules. Nothing really new there (we’ve known this for a while). The point of the article, though, is not to just tear apart MS for the new IE, but realize that both big browser companies haven’t done a good job in being standards friendly over the years. Time to check out Opera again? If only they’d make it free.
