CNET is reporting that the latest AOL beta for Mac OS X uses an integrated browser powered by Gecko rather than Internet Explorer. The article quotes a note to beta testers that states, "If you are surfing the Web, pages will look better, and you can view all the latest eye-pleasing special effects, graphics and styles that Web developers put into their sites."

America Online has been beta-testing Gecko in its AOL 7.0 client for Windows since March. The latest CompuServe 7.0 software already includes a Gecko-powered browser. also has a page about the OS X beta. AOL members can download it with the keyword MacBeta.

I live in Mexico and do computer work. I wanted to get a AOL 7 CD so I could install it after formatting a hard drive with out downloading.

I did a search on MSN and Google using the query AOL 7 on CD. I found links to law suits against AOL for mailing out so many CD's, links on things to make with the free CD's AOL is sending everyone. I found links for AOL CD's for the UK and Au, but I couldnt' find one link to get a US version of the CD.

I find that kind of strange.
