Gecko Appearing in Compuserve Betas

Thursday October 18th, 2001

AOL today confirmed that Gecko has been embedding into beta versions of CompuServe 7, according to this article. AOL 7 was released yesterday, still with IE as its embedded browser, but because CompuServe's software seems to be much like the AOL software, it's likely that we could also see AOL sporting Gecko as it's browser in the future.

Is that Compuserv does not have nearly as many users as AOL (I feel pretty safe so far), and that while AOL would like to use Gecko, they have had concerns about the stability/robustness. I\'d guess that putting Gecko on Compuserv is a way to \"test the waters\" without a major support/pr nightmare if something goes uh-oh.
