Netscape, not IE, put on new CompuServe

America Online on Tuesday fired the first shot in what may signal the rekindling of a Web browser war against Microsoft.

From news.com.com: "As expected, the Internet giant launched CompuServe 7.0 with Netscape bundled as its default browser. CompuServe, AOL's other online service, previously used Microsoft's Internet Explorer as its default browser. AOL itself continues to use IE.

"We're backing the product because we think it's a good one and we want to put it in users' hands, and CompuServe is a good place to get it out there," AOL spokesman Josh Danson said."
