I may be wrong but I do believe they've been beta testing AOL w/Netscape Gecko already. The really shocking thing is that time warner's "Road Runner Hi-Speed Online" still puts the IE garbage on your computer and doesn't use Netscape yet. This would be the easiest change to make if AOL-TW wants to show support for the product THEY own.
I have been beta testing AOLGecko since March. The testing, as expected ran into some problems because the Gecko-based browser cannot render some poorly written pages, and many many user/tester said that they would not have anything to do with AOL, if AOL changed from the IE-based format, or the suggestion was to make the Gecko-based optional. The testing stopped sometimes in early June, and, AOL is going, full force with AOL8, which IE-based. Some people,in the inner circles, are saying that developers have not stopped with AOLGecko, but will come out soon with an AOL8-Gecko.
It will be an interesting situation, but I am not so optimistic. The bottom line is money.
