[REBOL] Re: Browser gripe

AOL's and M$ business plans appear to be heading into direct conflict, M$ with
hailstorm and AOL with Red Hat. I dont see AOL wanting to depend on M$ for
even a dial tone. If AOL does decide to keep using IE for AOL for Windows, if
such a thing will even exist soon, I am sure it will be purely because AOL will
want to exercise its power over M$, though an unlikely scenario.
It is my guess that AOL, and others, are trying to hold off on such manuevers
until the punishment phase of the anti-trust suit is settled.
As far as my opinion on the browser issue... I think most or all of the
Netscape 4.x's were out of date when they came out. The problem is really
those nasty people behind the once rapidly evolving html spec, which was at one
time a great document format, and is now pathetic discombulation of mixed up
BTW: I am writing this with netscape 4.51 in win98 on a box with about 5 OS's
