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.

That's not so strange. It's the equivalent of Bushie saying "We have special ops around Afghanistan, but the decision hasn't been made whether or not to use them yet." Standard disclaimer.

Even with the disclaimer, everything else is pointing towards AOL jumping off the MS boat. Gecko is in a good enough state to be used in AOL and it's another area for them to compete with Microsoft.
