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.

Should AOL 8 use Gecko, it seems to me that AOL 7 is going to ease the transition a little. The color scheme is compatible with Modern's, for one thing, the installer works rather like the NS/Moz installer, and the whole visual effect is more, dare I say, "cross-platform" than has been the case in the past. (It actually looked slightly more XPish to me, installing it on a 98SE system. . . . Hey, look, I've got students who ask me questions about AOL.)
