The Daily Ping

We've only had four major designs over our 11 year history.

Netscape 6

Have you tried it? What are you thoughts?

My field notes: I decided to live with the browser for a day. It takes well over 8 forevers to load. The interface is new, but not necessarily bad. Renders pages fast but does this weird refresh thing before it’s "really" displayed. The upshot? It does stick to most of the W3C standards… but it bungles CSS in many cases, and can’t handle some HTML tricks that have worked before.

I think it’s worlds better than Netscape 4.7x, but am unsure about comparisons to IE. Opera needs to support W3C DHTML standards to leap over Netscape, I think. -pm

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
