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.

>There are many web designers who don't give a dime for standards. They will be forced to change attitude when all major sites comply to W3C specs. But until then, user-agent spoof might be a useful hack.

But this "until then" will probably be later and later the more people cheat their user-agent string so I think to just write an email to the site and probably reporting an evangelism bug at Bugzilla would be better, as the more emails they get the higher is the chance that they change their policy. On the long run this would be the better solution.
