"A David and Goliath fight, the battle between Netscape and
Microsoft over software for the Internet."
For all of his success in outwitting the likes of IBM to
become the leader of the world's biggest software
company, Bill Gates has long said that the competition
he most feared would come from a software start-up with
breakthrough, innovative technology. Netscape
Communications may be such a company. But a war over
technology standards, which could delay the progress of
electronic commerce and potentially impede Netscape's
growth, now seems inevitable. Netscape's hand has been
weakened by recent incidents in which flaws in the
security features of its browser software were
discovered by two "cyberpunks" [sic].
