AOL Opens Up With OpenRideposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 10/03/2006 10:15:00 PM
I downloaded OpenRide to check it out and it looks very much like the old AOL except the user interface now called Dynasizer - which is a four window pane that automatically adjusts your window to what activity you're doing - Email, Browsing, IM, Mediacenter, or Search.
For instance, if you are doing browsing, you'll see a screen like the on below where you can take a tour of OpenRide.
Or if you're doing media center activities like listening to music, it will enlarge the media center. Not rocket science, but probably very helpful for the average computer user like your grandparents. You need Windows XP with Service Pack 2 to run the software.
I wouldnt' call OpenRide a revolutionary product that revolutionizes the way you use the Internet, but I do believe it will make the web easier to use for the average user. Power users - stick with what you've got.
