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.

Please, no!

Why do you think IE identifies itself as Mozilla 4.0? Because it was trying to fool webservers.

Do we want browsers to be identifying them selves as

Mozilla 4.0 (Compatable; Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0 [compatable Opera 8.10 (compatable NewBrowser 2.0)])
