Weekend Discussion

Friday March 24th, 2000

Time for another weekend discussion. The question this weekend:

What do you feel is an appropriate level of integration between a browser and an Operating System? And at the other end of the spectrum, what are your feelings about Mozilla's cross-platform approach?

I think that XPToolkit and XPCom can be the killer developer frameworks of the Microsoft Windows dominance.

Many developers must decide to develop GUI applications over Windows plattform or X-Windows (XT,GTK or Qt), but develop on both systems costs very much, because they are very different.

Mozilla Group would may document, and maintain releases of the XPToolkit and XPCom and promote the development of web like applications, not only web based. This could hurt the MFC brutal dominance in desktop based applications.
