Dang. Matthew Thomas has beaten me to it, and posted a blog saying exactly what I was going to say about Mozillazine’s comments on CNET’s review of Netscape’s newly pre-released browser. He even links to the same article by Joel God-comes-to-me-for-advice-on-software Spolsky that I was going to link to.
So I will have to either shut up (fat chance), or think of something else to say on the subject. How about this: if the browser crashed whenever it loaded a web-page containing the word “goat”, and a few reviewers suggested that this was less than ideal, would you still shrug it off by saying “It's in the release notes”?
