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.

Earlier versions of AOL (and I believe they still do) included and installed stand-alone versions of IE for people who needed them. So you have AOL using integrated IE client and then you have the regular IE also installed. So they probably won't *integrate* Netscape mail (although they could, seeing as how Netscape mail accesses AOL mail), but they probably would like to see some mail issues resolved for the standard Netscape suite. Reading back on this, I just realized I almost said what you said in a roundabout way. Oh well. :)

Then I guess there is potential for Netscape mail to be integrated (although probably not, throwing those confusing terms like POP3 and SMTP might confuse the average person =)
