RE: Alternatives to the W3C
>Maybe I'm old-fashioned; I believe passionately that the Internet needs for >there to be more than one browser. -T. Aye, but try developing applications for users in Scotland (and we have several US offices). When the business suddenly says "everyone must be able to use it", you suddenly have to score out a whole load of technologies and the development either takes a lot longer (justify that to the guy paying) or just doesn't work that well for users. Don't get me wrong, I would not like any one company to dominate, as competitiveness = innovation, but surely they could all argue their "standards" to produce one really good browser. After all, the W3C are able to do it. cheers steven Steven Livingstone Glasgow, Scotland 07771 957 280 or +447771957280 Pro XML http://www.wrox.com/Consumer/Store/Details.asp?ISBN=1861003110 Professional Site Server 3, Wrox Press http://www.wrox.com/Consumer/Store/Details.asp?ISBN=1861002696 Professional Site Server 3.0 Commerce Edition, Wrox Press http://www.wrox.com/Consumer/Store/Details.asp?ISBN=1861002505 > -----Original Message----- > From: Tim Bray [SMTP:tbray@t...] > Sent: 20 January 2000 04:47 > To: Don Park; 'XML Dev' > Subject: RE: Alternatives to the W3C > > At 08:15 PM 1/19/00 -0800, Don Park wrote: > >I think we will all benefit tremendously if there was just > >one browser to support. > > Maybe I'm old-fashioned; I believe passionately that the Internet needs > for > there to be more than one browser. -T. > > xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
