David Hyatt on Dashboard

Monday, July 12th, 2004

David Hyatt weighed in on Dashboard’s HTML extensions and Apple’s involvement in the standards process. I have been impressed with Apple’s standards adherence and embracing open source in everything they do, (SMB, WebDAV, FreeBSD, KHTML, Apache, SSH, etc.).

I witnessed the W3C / Mozilla+Opera rift at the Compound Document workshop and I’d say that the WHAT-WG was the direct result of infighting among the standards bodies.

In my opinion, to suggest that Apple does not adhere to and support standards is shockingly untruthful to say the least; they set the example.
