The SJ Mercury asks if the browser wars
force users to choose between Microsoft's and Netscape's browsers.
In today's DaveNet
I explain why scripting makes it possible for Microsoft channels to be distributed thru Netscape's browser.
A safe way forward for Netscape users, even if there are lots of CDF channels.
You can view the source code
for the CDF parser or download the software thru a
Question: "Does Netscape provide hooks that allow a script to program its crawler?"
Answer: We don't need access to their crawler, we have a crawler suite that works.

Wired has a new search engine, Newbot, which
indexes high frequency sites.
Unfortunately it only works with Microsoft Internet Explorer for Windows. Honestly,
I think the benefit of pushing search queries to your desktop isn't worth the trouble. Just having
a search engine that indexes sites every 15 minutes is enough of a payoff, who needs the gee-whiz
aspects of the ActiveX stuff?
I wrote about "just in time" search engines in "Floating Ideas", 9/7/96.
SJ Mercury: Exponential shuts down.
