The browser's core will be Microsoft Corp. (MSFT)'s market-dominant Internet Explorer.

No........ :(
But AOL engineers are working to add such features as tabbed browsing, letting users open new Web pages without cluttering the screen with new windows. Unlike tabbed browsing in the Opera and Firefox browsers, AOL's will display a mini-version of the Web page, or thumbnail, as users scroll over a tab.

That's good though. Odd how Microsoft say they can't implement tabbed browsing in IE6, yet AOL can.

...AOL financed an organization behind a competing browser called Firefox...

This probably has something to do with it :)

I certainly won't be downloading anything from AOL!

...(used to be) software that had to be installed on computers and often made some serious modifications to the operating system.

That approach no longer makes sense, said Kerry Pearce-Parkins, director of AOL Product Management...

Oh really? Nice to see y'all wake up and smell the real world.

The browser's core will be Microsoft Corp.'s market-dominant Internet Explorer...

...AOL engineers are working to add such features as tabbed browsing...

...The new AOL Media Player, built on AOL-owned Winamp technology, will also seek to integrate software with AOL's on-line radio stations and music store...

Hmmm, looks like they're gonna throw the hog at this.

Everyone, humm along:

"Browser wars are HERE again..."
