The code was written in Finnish?[edit]

Really? There's a link to the source, and it's in C with English variable names and comments. Snori (talk) 04:40, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

“First graphical browser”[edit]

The article, and the linked OSNews article, fail to make the case that Erwise was a “graphical browser” in some way that WorldWideWeb was not. –Ahruman (talk) 09:59, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

“Crashing”[edit]

(Should I write or not, don't know if it's against "ethics") Crashing was mainly due the selection of Motif, and Motif was not stabile on all the platforms that time. And it even was not open we now know. I could not convince the programming group to select another toolkit - I really tried to - but but they liked Motif and had been coding with it earlier so ... sorry //arl (Ari Lemmke) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.183.132.2 (talk) 12:58, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

A legend here, the man who named Linux. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.74.247.224 (talk) 12:53, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Reference nr six "broken" for that matter[edit]

"Lets keep the web together", he said, mais dans quelle langue? Besides, men are ugly, women are beautiful (Nicola Pellow for instance). OK, a genius, I'm bere because of him, love to browse Taiwanese pages, but connections have a cost. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.41.10.227 (talk) 20:00, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

'Before we label "levels" to various browsers, I think it'd help if we, the Web community, collect and maintain some basic information about different browsers.' Pei, 15 Oct 93, long after Mosaic. He forgot ScreenMode, perlWWW, MacWWW and VMS client, for instance, but love this guy (for Google, the one Archie based which works for deepness, I recommend https, plus disabling js, for man-in-the-browser intrusion, too refined searches may require changing IP).
Since Pei was, like Robert Cailliau, polyglot, not a surprise he didn't care about "supporting". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.3.129.106 (talk) 22:32, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Unsuitable sources[edit]

"Tim Berners-Lee would have continued with the works of Erwise. He could not do so because Erwise was documented in the Finnish language." Not available in the linked page. If the Finnish guys were polyglot, why not him? Are English native speakers morons?

"Both crashed with certain x-servers in beta test." TBL "attributed to poor Motif implementations" or just registered an open doubt?
