AOL Stand-Alone Web Browser


icon
Everybody's competing nowadays. AOL has started beta testing its own new stand alone web browser [link]. Anyone with an AOL or AIM screen name can use it. However, instead of basing it on Firefox, AOL has based the browser on something geeks wouldn't expect: Internet Explorer. As if IE didn't already have enough loopholes, do we need a bunch that are labeled "AOL"? From reading reviews, AOL does the usual by loading your computer with spyware and adware upon installing the web browser. Skip this and Get Firefox!

IE isn't based on Firefox.

Wait, so they're basing their web browser on another browser that's based on FireFox?

AOL is better of basing it on FireFox, or just making no web browser at all!

Why would you ever trust AOL with anything? If you've ever used AOL (and I think most of us have at one point or another) you must remember the assault on the senses everytime you logged on. Popups and junk apps everywhere. Icky.
