<h2>Conclusion</h2><p><h2>The Future of Mozilla Browsers</h2>
   
<pre><p>The browsers that are currently under development using Mozilla are just the tip of the iceberg.  One of the most interesting possibilities for future browser development comes from AOL, the same company that owns Netscape and that is the main sponsor of the Mozilla community.  Currently the Windows version of the AOL client uses Internet Explorer as the core of it's browser, but their are indications that this way soon change.  If AOL were to use Mozilla in a new version of their software,  tens of millions of people would be exposed to Mozilla.

<p>If you think of a type of browser that is needed but that is not being developed right now, use Mozilla to create your own browser.<p>AOL has already made some moves in this direction.  The latest version of the <a href="http://www.apple.com/macosx/applications/aol/">AOL client for Mac OS X</a> uses Gecko as it's rendering engine.  Gecko has also replaced Internet Explorer in <a href="http://news.com.com/2100-1023-883808.html">CompuServe 7.0</a>, the latest version of AOL's other online service.  The decision to use Gecko in these two offerings are seen by many as ways for AOL to iron out any rough spots before they move forward with releasing the latest version of their AOL client for Windows.
   
   <p>It will be interesting to see what happens with the future of the AOL client, but it is just one of many browser projects worth keeping on eye on.  Other projects to take a look at include <a href="http://www.muhri.net/skipstone">SkipStone</a>, <a href="http://qbati2.sourceforge.net">Q.Bati</a>, <a href="http://beonex.com/communicator/">Beonex Communicator</a>, <a href="http://browserg.mozdev.org">BrowserG!</a>, and <a href="http://dino.mozdev.org">Dino</a>.  *** any others? ***
   
-------------------------------------------------<p>If there is a browser that you would like to use that isn't already being worked on, remember that you can always create your own browser with Mozilla [link to brian's article].  Each of the projects listed here could also use help with testing and development, so you can also contribute by adding features or fixing bugs to make these browsers even better.  This wealth of options is a great strength, so let's hope that each of these browsers matures into... 
 Let 100 browsers bloom.
