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.
Hi You'll need to find npswf32.dll for Flash and np32dsw.dll for "Shockwave for director" and then just copy these into your plugin folder.
As to CNN, what is the problem there? I go there often, watch any of the three formats of video, I have no problems at their site.
