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.

A couple of days ago I was reading a thread in one of the Mozilla newsgroups, and noticed a message from somebody at Netscape. A reply had apparently been sent to one of the participants by private email, but that participant responded in public quoting some of the private email's content. The private email was from a Netscape employee and talked about something happening "in time for AOL/Gecko".

Today I can't find the message in question; it's possible the newsgroup posting was cancelled, although I have no way to confirm that. My vague recollection is that it was a post regarding the Mozilla 1.0 definition document on n.p.m.seamonkey, but I can't confirm that either. I can only assume that the message was posted publically by mistake, but it's a nice confirmation that there's something to these rumours.
