The humble browser

Time for a humble browser (Advogato, via the ever reliable Webword)

“And while I really like the idea of standards, I also shudder to think of where we’ll be in fifty years, if Opera’s position becomes dominant. Innovation will dry up because everything is ‘standards-based’ and the standards are ALWAYS a couple of years behind innovations. Having worked in a giant bureaucracy, and also for a small company, I prefer the latter because the standards are so much freer. Easier to navigate. […] I do not want a standards-based Internet which tolerates no new extensions, and for THIS reason, I am an Open Source advocate who is really excited about IE’s innovations, frustrated by Opera’s simple inability to allow a drag-n-drop interface within a browser. “
