AOL Desktop is an internet suite produced by AOL that integrates a web browser, a media player and an instant messenger client.[1] Based on AOL OpenRide,[2] it is an upgrade from such.[3] The Mac OS X version is based on WebKit.

AOL Desktop is different from previous AOL browsers, which are still available. Its features are focused on browsing instead of email. For instance, one does not have to sign into AOL in order to use it as a regular browser. In addition, non-AOL email accounts can be accessed through it. There are three main buttons: "MAIL", "IM", and "WEB". The first two require users to sign in but "WEB" can be instantly used.
