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.

Traditionally/irritatingly, every time a new article is posted there, a horde of idiots rush to get "first post" in the comments. It used to be a status thing: if you had the first post, it was more likely to be read. However, long ago the "prestige" of getting first post overshadowed getting ideas across, and most first posts say something illuminating like "first post", "f1st pr0st", or "I 607s f1r57 p057 j00 sux0rz".
