Gary reports that AOL.com Portal Leaves Beta, after "a three month beta period, the AOL.com open web portal has been officially released." I personally don't remember what the AOL homepage looked like before, but Gary told me it was not much of a visual change, since the roll out has been slow, in terms of UI. But yesterday, AOL officially announced;
AOL.com is no longer in Beta! hanks very much for all your testing assistance.
Notice the typo in the word "thanks." :)
