Browser Wars, going back to the future.

So, Netscape 6.22
came out last week and it's still betaware
. But, Gecko based browsing
is in AOL's future
and there will be ramifications
. Now, I think Lie's quote about AOL going to Gecko is spot on when he says that "If AOL successfully deploys Mozilla...Authors will need to write browser-neutral pages...." But I think it's important to remember that the uptake rate of Gecko (as embedded in AOL 8?) is not going to be lightning fast, and even if it turns out to be fairly aggressive, I think we have a good year before Gecko becomes an entry in a project plan
