AOL Launches a New Version of its Most Popular Desktop Software

Enhanced Software Integrates Tabbed Browsing into "Classic" AOL Experience

AOL today launched the latest version of its classic software, AOL 9.5, designed to enhance the user experience with new tabbed browsing and a revised user interface. AOL 9.5 represents an updated version of AOL's most popular all-in-one downloadable software, used by more than 28.6 million people on broadband and dial-up connections every day.

Key benefits of using the new software include:

  • All-in-one, easy-to-use experience: AOL 9.5 puts everything users want at their fingertips – a Web browser, mail, messaging and content.
  • New tabbed browsing: Users can easily open and manage multiple windows. Tabs let you keep several sites all open at once without cluttering your screen, and there's no need to use a separate search engine because AOL Search, enhanced by Google™, is always on the top of your screen.
  • Integrated AIM: AIM® is built-in -- so you can see which of your buddies are online and instantly chat, share pictures and more.
