According to Slashdot, AOL has started beta testing their new Firefox-based version of Netscape, and it contains a little surprise: the new browser allows you to choose between Gecko and Trident, the rendering engines used in Firefox and IE, respectively.

As usual, I’m ambivalent. The geek in me says ‘cool’. The web developer says ‘why include the clearly inferior Trident engine at all?’ The standards evangelist just says ‘aaaaaaaaaaaargh!’
