they are faster than i expected with making a gecko-based release. but this is indeed a great step towards web-standards, and will make it an easier job for all of us to demand standardconformant webpages. huh, i thought, i'd never say this, but i love AOL. now i do. not for their internet service, since i can't stand their approach of giving you anything you already have, just in AOL-ish... (does anyone know, if it's possible to connect to AOL without installing any extra-software like dialers or sortalike?) but i'm not their customer anyway. so i don't really care. but i love them for doing just those 2 things: * let netscape/mozilla live (and fund them =) * bringing good technologie to people, so they can view cool CSS-based sites correctly... IE's (and Opera's, too) support for background-attachment: fixed; is a shame.

so: let's hope the AOL/gecko combination will be a success.
