I jstu saw this at Cnet, it basically claims that because Netcsape 5.0
is a part of the open source format, that developers will be able to use
the browser engine, and be able to use it as an embedable component in
their applications

Something for COf to seriously look at, so they can get proepr twin
browser supprot .. .

If everyone played fair in the market place and the US government got their
sticky nose out of it and let Microsoft and Netscape compete we would have
magic browsers that would be fully compatible to all protocols of the
internet.

Oh Fac, it gets even better...

Look at: http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/mozilla.htm
(AW is mentioned there too)

A quote from their site:

"Since the Mozilla control implements exactly the same API, it will mean
that developers can take existing IE code and port it, sometimes in a
matter of minutes! The only modification required may be to replace the
line that creates the control of type CLSID_WebBrowser with one of
CLSID_MozillaBrowser. VB developers must delete the IE control from
their project and insert a Mozilla one with the same instance name."

So, there we are... All we're waiting for now is for Netscape to get a
public release of Netscape 5.0 (which should include the Mozilla
control), and CoF to see the light and advantages of this "magic" *wink*
browser :-)

Doubtful, considering Roland told me yesterday that he hardly ever reads the newsgroups except for beta (when a beta has been released) and sdk...kinda pointless, eh? So you can bet he doesn't give a shit about wishlist...I never figured COF would actually LOOK there anyway; they just made the group to keep the "customers" happy and actually think they can help improve AW. Feh...
