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.

You wasted more time complaining about that bug than you would have just skipping over it. If that was the only bug that came up in your search, then that means that your search was either too narrow, not suited to what you wanted to find, or the bug you were looking for hasn't been reported yet--that's true *any* time the bug you are looking for doesn't appear in your search results. If that joke bug didn't exist, your search results would have returned nothing, instead of a bug you weren't looking for--the bug you wanted wouldn't magically appear in its place; the joke bug isn't "hiding" other bugs that otherwise would be found by the exact same search (as if that was possible).

Joke bugs only waste a significant amount of time if everyone who sees them feels morally obligated to whine about them on Mozillazine, like yourself, rather than simply skipping over them.
