LinuxPower ran my interview today. Then slashdot picked up on it and the site was unavailable for a while. It's a reasonable interview. The questions were well clued.

There was at one question at the bottom of the article that someone posted:

More and more pages can be read only if you have Internet Explorer, Netscape won't read them, because the page uses proprietary Microsoft technology. Will Mozilla read these pages?

The people building Mozilla are attempting to build a 100% standards complaint browser. If you build pages that are standards complaint then Mozilla should be able to read them. I don't think that there are any plans to add compatibility for those technologies. I think that it only encourages people to use them and that's what we want to get away from.

I'm pretty sure we would accept those compatibility layers if people felt like writing them, though.
