I agree wholeheartedly with this response...If all someone wants out of Mozilla is a browser, then he's got that already. But, aren't we all a bit tired of hearing how evil IE is and that it's so inferior? If this were true, why are thousands of programmers using that web browser component all the time to do things not dreamed of by the average web-vision-only developer? I think that abstracting XPCOM and such to function similar to ActiveScripting and the like is a fantastic idea. As this poster asked, is there really an army of XPCOM C++ coders...Or, is there even an army of JS coders? No, there isn't, but there is an army of Perl and Python programmers and those languages are mature and well-supported. This is great news to me.
