Subject: No Half Measures: How we should meet the Netscape Challenge
After the billg Internet review today, here are my thoughts on the
priorities for PSD and the rest of Microsoft .. I think we should have
to do even more cloning (esp. LiveScript) of Netscape, and we have to
focus on Win95 - not Nashville.
1. Clone their client technology early and often (full embrace strategy)
2. Add key Microsoft technologies to their client and target our tools
at that client (full extend strategy)
PSD: Internet Explorer 3.0 for Q1/96 releaser
2. Clone Netscape LiveScript: 2 SDEs can control OCs with LiveScript,
get to market faster than waiting for VB (?)
13. Clone rest of Netscape Navigator 2.0 HTML enhancements: 1 SDE
Why is Netscape where they are today?
1. Filled a vacuum: no one else was developing a "high-quality" web browser.
4. Continued to lead with new features on a regular basis: LiveScript,
Java, FrameSets, etc
Where is Netscape going?
3. Render Windows itself irrelevant: Establish new platform
