Summary: Firefox NOT Supporting Standards Based Web Services

Dear Firefox folks,
After searching high and low for a contact managment application that
suited my narrow needs, I found Qasper ( ). I soon
learned that the product only works with MSIE6. ARGH!! I wrote to the
developers and received the following email. Please comment on it for me
- it is contrary to what I expected.

The problem is that Firefox and Safari do NOT support standards-based
web services, Buck. We've petitioned them many times to do that but they
have not yet done so.
We have circulated dozens of programmer communities in search of someone
who can generate standards-based Web Service calls against back-end .NET
web services via client-side Javascript using Firefox and have found no
With IE, it's a one-line call via Javascript. With Firefox, not only is
it a complex set of code (that no one can get to work), but further
requires a special security acknowledgement.
Without web services, you cannot ensure backend security.
If we were able to call .NET web services from Firefox via client-side
Javascript, we'd do it in a New York minute and you would have what you

After months of searching for a contact manager that would require
little if no customization and great featrures I found Qasper and was
ecstatic until I see that you programmed only for Microsoft product
instead of opensource or standards based. How incredibly sad. Do you
even have a plan to move away from MS and offer cross platform, cross
app functionality? Firefox and Safari (not to mention Web 2.0 desktops)
are finally putting some nails in MS's coffin.

Calling a Web Service from a Web Service
Hello,I was looking for some feedback on calling a web service from within a web service. I've heard that it's not good practice (or not possible). I have a scenario where I think it might make some sense.Within our infrastructure, we've created a web service that handles incoming updates on the statuses of all processes. This has proven to be a good thing since it allows applications to communicate across server to make status updates. It's also used by third party developers and applications to communicate with our infrastructure.Along these lines ... we are planning to create a new compon...

Firefox standard support
I was wondering if the list of standards that Firefox 0.8 supports is publicly available anywhere? Also, is there a list of bugs that is also available? I'm very interested in kicking Firefox 0.8's tires and seeing if it's something we might be able to use at my company to replace IE, but I want to know about what it claims to support and what the known quirks are before really diving into it. And it came to pass that Saiyan Vejita wrote: > I was wondering if the list of standards that Firefox 0.8 > supports is publicly available anywhere? Also, is there a >...
