They want beta testers to try using a series of java sites (links provided by AOL). They all worked flawlessly for me (Java 1.3.02). I haven't had any crashes and speedwise feels the same as standard AOL 7 with IE. It uses Gecko .94.2 (a bit obsolete now, but we all know that gecko.94 was very stable). It shows same MSNBC site rendering problem as in Mozilla. Not surprising, being an MS affiliated site. AOL use of gecko will make evangelism more effective. No serious company can ignore 34 million users (mostly consumers). ;-)
