AOL Testing Gecko in its Mac OS X Client

Thursday May 16th, 2002

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.

Wow, that is new. (I might add it seems to run quite sluggish on RC1.) Though it would be surprising to me if Netscape/AOL decided to use a different skin at this stage, what with all the refinements and testing done on this skin.
