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.

XUL is a great example of what open web standards have brought us as it is implemented using established web standards like XML, XSL, CSS and the DOM.

Mozilla is by far the most featureful and stable browser _I_ use on a regular basis. It simply does not crash as often as the buggy and feature-incomplete browser known as IE, and when it does it doesn't bring down my whole OS. Not to mention it is the nicest dhtml development environment out there with its intergrated javascript console and debugger. Testing pages in ie is just a nightmare.

I know you are just a Troll so i shouldn't bother trying to argue on logic, but you still have yet to say anything that you cannot do with the standards supported in Mozilla.

Straus, you reap what you sew. If you start throwing mud, expect a little to come back your way.
