One of the hopes that I have had for Mozilla is that it could be the basis for cross-platform applications that can manage both GUI and printing.
Up until now Java has been just about the only option in this area. Kylix is promissing Windows + Linux, but that leaves out the Mac, which I would prefer not to do. A really good scripting API, and a decent scripting language, like Ruby or Python (I don\\\\\\\'t know Perl) would make this plausible. The trick here is to have all the slow stuff, and all the platform specific stuff, managed by native coded Mozilla routines. This looks to me like an area with great promise!
