Looks like Microsoft and AOL are firmly in bed now.
AOL Cuts Remaining Mozilla Hackers
It has been learned through public and private sources that AOL has cut or will cut the remaining team working on Mozilla in a mass firing and are dismantling what was left of Netscape (they’ve even pulled the logos off the buildings). Some will remain working on Mozilla during the transition, and will move to other jobs within AOL.[MozillaZine.org]
If Mozilla and Netscape completely disappear what will the market hold for Windows users. Are we to be given no choice? Will MS subject us to their will deciding when and if to adopt W3C standards in their browser? I wonder if there are any “monopoly” statutes being violated. As a web designer I don’t know whether to jump for joy at how easy my life is to become or cry.
