Macworld UK’s Jonny Evans reported today that AOL UK is working on a new client software app that runs natively in Mac OS X, after previous attempts to create such a software application were abandoned. The news comes in an article entitled
AOL UK announces OS X browser plans.
Evans quoted AOL UK’s chief communications officer Matt Peacock, who said “Mac OS is taking off, it’s moving very quickly through Apple’s user base.”
Peacock also told Evans that a beta testing programming would be offered to AOL UK users within the next couple of weeks. Peacock described the new client software as “a completely different build” that even differs from its US counterpart in features and functionality. The software utilizes rebuilt instant messaging and e-mail features, and fully supports Mac OS X’s Aqua interface.
