Right, that's bascially, what I meant. But I don't know, if these apps generate only keystrokes. Standardized windows message boxes have some predefined answers - "OK", "Cancel", "Yes", "No" etc. (you can easily see that on a localized version of windows: in some apps, the msg text appears in english, but the buttons are labeled in your language) - and IIRC, some speech recognition packages let you speak the answers and choose the right button.

It's also the other direction - speech generation. A smart app might catch and react according to their class - alert, warning, question or whatever.

This will all break with Mozilla. OK, such dialogs (Yes/No) are not extensively used in Mozilla, but if it will be an app platform, they will be.
