Here's AOL 2.7 for MacOS: <aol://4344:1095.m27final.9437904.515875830>
I don't have any info on other ones.

>And, is it necessary to test on them?

Well, I've only come across two major issues with the AOL 2.7 browser 
(which is not to say there aren't more, of course). Those issues are:

   * BODY BGCOLOR must be "#RRGGBB" -- value "white" is seen as "#000000".
   * OPTION VALUE's must all be unique, as it eats duplicates.

Who knows. :)
