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.

#109 Wasn't it the purpose of gecko?

Gecko wasn't the engine behind HTML which can be embedded?

Realplayer pre 9.0 was OK, since it was built on that way, to be integrated with mshtml.dll . No need to break a working thing.

But Realone player is totally browser dependent, e.g. 80% of its features are done with HTML and it depends on IE html engine.

OK, lets don't mention Morpheus even, which is sure a guinness record breaker on download numbers, using "licensed" MS HTML engine (reasons can be political even) but an brand new AOL app using IE engine _still_ raises some concerns.
