Most recent numbers show AOL with about 14% of the global
market as an ISP. If all of these users switched to the
new AOL 8.0, it would almost certainly change the mix of
browser stats by 10% toward Netscape "Gecko". That would
mean that about 15% of the users would be Netscape.
As someone that has done a lot of cross-broser coding, I
am not too worried about this. The differences between
IE 5+ and Gecko, although annoying, are pretty easy to
overcome. The big pain right now is trying to make things
work with NS 4+.

Subject: [NH] How many users does AOL have?
Looks like the rumors were true. Now what will happen to all the sites that
cater only for IE ? Oops! Cleaning time!
