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.


#82 Maybe a few Showcase Sites

Some interesting responses so far in this thread. In the past Mozilla has been very daunting to code DHTML against. 0.95+ though is a lot better, to the extent that its not so hard anymore to do non trivial DHTML with little or no code forking.

I think it would help if the IE-only brigade and other naysayers had a few sites to look at that showed how achievable IE/Mozilla cross browser coding can be. There a few isolated examples about such as Eric Meyers site, the few examples on DevEdge and myNetscape.

I have been working for a while on various dhtml "widgets" and am putting an internet site together that has several of these features in place, such as a dynamic menu, floating windows, tabbed panes, drag drop content (a la MSDN), and a collapsible threaded discussion forum. I have already done the code, just need to get off my lazy arse and put them online.

If we had a few showcases it might goad developers into giving Mozilla another look.
