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.

You're new around here, aren't you?

MozillaQuest is always complaining about how many bugs there are in Mozilla (they - well, he, as it's a one-man show - are always saying that each Mozilla release is buggier than the last one when the reverse is true) and publishing other rubbish such as The Mozilla Organization being an AOL Time Warner puppet and Netscape denying that they use Mozilla code.

I'm not quite sure as to the reasons why. Maybe he's just deluded. Maybe it's because negative stories like those illustrated above get the attention of sites like Newsforge and Slashdot. Maybe he's fulfilling a psychological need for the Mozilla community to have an 'enemy'. Or maybe it's to distract from his poor quality of writing.

The parody site MozillaQuestQuest <http://www.mozillaquuestquest.com/> is far more fun.
