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.

#48 does not show stylesheet in Mozilla

Another problem site:

<> looks like a site from 1995 - because for an unknown reason, Mozilla 0.9.8 and 0.9.9 do not load the stylesheet. I have contacted Opera about this, but have gotten no reply.

This could be Opera getting Netscape back for (irrationally) blocking Opera 6 users from using Netscape Webmail with a message that says: "your browser is too old." Opera 6, however, is brand new.
