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.

If Gecko becomes part of Compuserve software and eventually of AOL software too, it will make advocacy and evangelism a lot easier. There is no doubt that all those reluctant webmasters who resist making their web sites work well with Mozilla/Netscape 6.x will have to re-evaluate their positions. Compuserve has over 3 million users that cannot be ignored and if AOL 30-something million members are added to the picture, no ecommerce site, gaming site or banking site will be able to justify shying away from supporting Moz.
