From CNET:

America Online and Microsoft are in preliminary discussions to revise their long-standing partnership agreement, a move that could see renewed cooperation between the technology giants after a period of apparent discord.

Some of the issues on the table include the inclusion of AOL software on Microsoft's upcoming Windows XP operating system and AOL's use of Microsoft's Internet Explorer Web browser, sources familiar with the talks said Friday. However, these sources cautioned that the talks are at an early stage and may not lead to a deal.

Considering the VERY slow adoption rate of Netscape 6 and Mozilla, if the AOL deal with Microsoft about continuing to use IE goes through, well.. that's not good news for Mozilla.
