BenoitRen Posted May 4, 2009 Share Posted May 4, 2009 When HTML, PHP, ASP, Flash and all others will no longer be backwards compatible, none of the 9x users will be able to browse the web anymore.You don't seem to know what you're talking about.HTML has always been backwards-compatible, and HTML5 will be backwards-compatible as well.The web browser does not need to know anything about PHP and ASP. They're server-side scripting languages that output file contents. In most cases, HTML.Flash is not part of the web, and I'm not sure if backwards-compatibility is even in its nature. It's a proprietary framework that doesn't even run all that great on GNU/Linux.You'll say there's convertors - soon there won't be people to build/update them anymore, so they'll lie down and die.You really think the Win9x community can't do it itself? That it's a talentless bunch?They are changing standards too fast and too deep.When I look at the history of HTTP, HTML and CSS, I see this isn't true at all. They 'change' quite slowly.Final blow will be the introduction of IPv6 which will definitely kill all 9x web activityNonsense. There are routers that can do 6to4. That is, to be connected to an IPv6 Internet while being part of an IPv4 network. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
