An industry group made up the four major browser vendors, such as Apple,
Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla, have won a tug-of-war with the World
Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the standards body for the World Wide Web,
effectively proving that without their support, the W3C's ability to
regulate web standards is nonexistent.
When competitors own standards criteria, 'standards' becomes an oxymoron.
Also, I always preferred W3C documentation over WHATWG's.
The article indicates that the named browser vendors had cooperated to
produce their own standard because they did not like the one W3C had
come up with.
That is not necessarily a bad thing, you know the saying "A camel is a
horse designed by a committee"? I have no idea what camel W3C came up
with but if the browser vendows refuse to implement it, I'd assume there
was something fundamentally wrong with it.
