no worries, the document-centric approach has now been invented by MS and it'll make its way into XP soon enough.Originally posted by alset
One other note - was anyone else disappointed that OpenDoc didn't succeed?
Don't be sorry man..they didn't hire hyatt for nothing.Originally posted by sparkleytone
sorry but i dont see it happening. chimera is fine...so is ie. just dont see it happening. ie crashes no more than its windows counterpart.
I disagree. I know more PC people who hate IE than like it. No one will really care. IE isn't something that people look for when choosing a platform.Originally posted by Falleron
I think it is very important that IE continues to be developed for the Mac. This is what PC folk will look for + if they dont find it they may think twice about switching (I know it depends on lots of other things but this is an obvious piece of software).
Aren't you quite the pessimistic one?Originally posted by springscansing
and Chimera doesn't even have history or the ability to open images in a new window
People love to bash Microsoft. I hope that any Apple browser will include an autofill feature. I use it all the time, and it has kept me from using other browsers. IE rarely crashes on me, less than once a week under heavy use. Much less.Originally posted by AssassinOfGates
doesn't force you to use its own mail and address book, and can choose between tabs and new windows.
Apple's really been into open standards lately, to set themselves apart from Msoft, so I think we're safe here.Originally posted by tompatros
They could make a browser out of a monkey, some flash cards and a blue highlighter for all I care, as long as it is W3C COMPLIANT. Please don't make all the designers + developers of the world have to worry about yet another browser with its own idiosyncracies.
Actually iTunes was SoundJam from Cassidy and Green along with CD Master from Radialogic. Apple bought both proggies and combined them into the beast that iTunes is today.Originally posted by alset
Some people wonder why Apple would use Chimer technology for a browser. for those in doubt, I remind you that iTunes is really SoundApp with a new interface and better visuals. Apple loves to buy up technology that has been tested and proven.
I know that lots of people dont like IE on windows. However, when you say the word Internet Browser you generally think of IE or Netscape (on the PC). Its a little different on the Mac because we are used to using different browsers. I use Mozilla 90% of the time + IE when I need to use Online stores (some dont work in Mozilla). I just think it is important to get full support from Microsoft in order to keep the Mac platform fighting. I know we could do without it, but I think it would be better to keep it.Originally posted by bluecell

Actually, iTunes is based on SoundJam, not SoundApp!
Chimera has a history. It had been hidden, but it is now enabled in the nightlies (for about the past 3 weeks or so). It's all right.Originally posted by springscansing
Seriously.. its embarrasing. IE crashes too much, and Chimera doesn't even have history or the ability to open images in a new window, and Mozilla's interface is a snail. They all suck!
I notice that you don't mention Chimera of Omniweb. Are you running OS X?Originally posted by peterjhill
I will look at Apple's browser, just as i look at all new browsers. I have IE, iCab, Mozilla, and Netscape installed on my computer, IE is my primary browser. It will continue to be, as long as it remains what I feel is the best browser for my use.
