Why Windows (not WindowsTM) Suck

   Multiple windows that communicate with each other dynamically are trouble prone in cross-browser situations

  • Problems with closed window detection with NN2 and IE3
  • Registry corruption bug in IE4
  • Difficulty testing on local hard disk in IE4 due to false security errors

   User interface concerns

  • Unsophisticated users "lose" windows easily.
  • Floating palettes in Navigator require signed scripts and user permission
