   RE: [xml-dev] The Browser Wars are Dead! Long Live the Browser Wa rs!

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Not exactly.  Some frameworks are evolving to 
make using the classic HTML browser (ie, HTML 
as the host language of a universal intergace) 
less necessary.  It is much cooler.  I also said, 
if we want to use the term "web browser", that 
term becomes less descriptive of a specific 
platform and becomes more a watered down way 
to say, "web aware because it can use the 
operating system web services without using 
a line of HTML".

So when you said "the broswer lost", you meant "the browser evolved"?  I know 
that's less cool sounding, but saying so up front would have saved us all a 
lot of talking past each other.
