Jon Udell at Infoworld has written about something near and dear to my heart – how the key browser developers are no longer Waiting for Godot, and are starting on a vigorous course of new developments in widgets, Forms ( see, and general browser improvements. Most of this work is planned to be dove-tailed into W3C , ECMA and other standards bodies. Most welcome is the fact that the major browser orgs (Apple, Mozilla, and Opera) are co-operating along with some major players like BEA, Sun, etc. This is good news worth repeating.
