VB is easy because you have **many avanced wizards**. With VisualC++ you can make in a few seconds a powerfull application but EMPTY. Write specific behaviour code is other thing. Wizards can be like smoke, hidden a not well designed technology like MFC library or a not oriented language like VB.

The important cuestion is technology capabilities, Mozilla is prepared to do very interesant applications with a bunch of technologies to use: C++ to code XPCOM powerfull modules (or Java if you like), JavaScript to programing XUL graphic behaviour, XUL tags to define visual components.

Magic wizards, tutorials, IDEs etc, go after...
