Thank God, I wouldn't know.

It pops up a window (like the Channels window) that shows the aol.com
homepage. As one blogger said: "I can't believe they still have customers."
Other than just the self-promoting "features" they build into their product, I
can't believe that people still feel there is a need for AOL. With broadband
access becoming increasingly more available, just about anything you do on AOL
can be done on some website. The only benefit I see from AOL is for total
newbies who don't know where to find each of the AOL-like goodies.

Hmmm... I hope I didn't just start a lengthy thread.
