AOL 6.0 and Mozilla
Tuesday May 30th, 2000
We have two news items regarding AOL's latest software development efforts. The first, from BetaNews.com, is a look at an unofficial, accidentally-released version of AOL's 6.0 software. What's interesting is not the new look of the AOL software, but rather a post in that article's forum. In it, the poster ("BUBKAII") claims that Gecko is the rendering engine behind the application itself, even though IE5 is still the browser inside the application! No kidding. Anyone else want to try downloading and testing this?
Next, Jedbro writes: "AOL has started on a new project called 'Gamera' that will put AOL on Linux and such 'Internet appliances' granting it the AOL Everywhere ability they are after. Interesting stuff, and most importantly... GECKO's the browser behind all this!! =) =)" You can read more at the Kenton Industries website.

I don't think they actually use XUL for the GUI. What the poster meant (as I understand it) is that it uses NGLayout to display HTML mail msgs and the content of the popups. The GUI is probably hardcoded in C++.
