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.

Ah, but the great thing about Slashdot is that its posts are moderated and scored by other readers. Posts that get less than 1 point aren't displayed by default (if you're a registered Slashdot user you can set this 'threshold' to be higher). Most first posts get moderated down and you don't have to see all the offtopic or flamebait posts.

Slashdot's moderation system is very sophisticated (it has to be, they get hiundreds of posts per article) and very interesting - read more about it here: <>
