AOL Creates Its Own Browsing Software

December 13, 2004

AOL is creating its own standalone browser aimed at employees who cannot install AOL software at their workstations.

The browser will be based on Internet Explorer. Though AOL financed an organization behind a competing browser Firefox, Kerry Pearce-Parkins, director of AOL Product Management, said the company stuck with IE so users won’t have to make “a leap of faith.”

The browser will include AOL extensions such as tabbed browsing and AOL’s Media Player to access AOL’s premium content. 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.
