AOL Moving to Gecko

Monday March 11th, 2002

Newsforge, and others are reporting that the AOL client will use Gecko, starting with the next major release, 8.0. Along with that, the story talked about AOL's departure from any server platform that isn't linux, and AOL's plans to release a standalone linux client (there aren't any).

This has long been the rumor, and many felt until AOL started using Gecko, it would be hard to get sites to stop using proprietary IE code. This may be the kick in the pants that's needed to help get major sites to allow non-Microsoft browsers access to all of their content.

The whole point of a div is to divide a document up into seperate documentlets for lack of a better term. The NS4 layers API had a noble goal, unfortunately it was entirely too buggy. If someone could explain "ttyle" to me I'd be very grateful. :)
