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 news.com 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.

Many of us have friends who are professional web developers. To get more support for Mozilla out there, we should work on getting our friends to support it. I have two web developer buddies who are IE-only type guys. But now, with Mozilla finally being better than IE, I think I might be able to get them to switch to Mozilla themselves. And if they do that, they are likely to support it on their sites. In addition, many of us have friends or family who look to us as their tech support. "Can you come over and set up my new computer?" Sure I can - and I'll install Mozilla (or N6.1) while I'm at it. I recently moved my Mom over to Netscape 6.1 (she was using Netscape 4 before). I removed the Netscape 4 and IE icons; she just uses what I give her and doesn't even think to question it. Next time I'm over at my best friend's house, I'm going to show him why he ought to dump Netscape 4 for Mozilla, Moz being much better. Little by little, these types of efforts will increase Mozilla's market share and get developers to write for it.
