Comparing the Architectural Principles of Microsoft Longhorn and Mozilla

Wednesday December 3rd, 2003

DevX has an article by Nigel McFarlane that draws parallels between the architecture of Microsoft Longhorn and the architecture of Mozilla. In addition to comparing XAML to XUL, McFarlane also notes the similarities between Avalon and Gecko as well as Indigo and Necko. Thanks to Ann O. and ummmmm for the news.

that page scrolls veeeeeeery slowly for me in Firebird 0.7+/20031202, but in Mozilla 1.5 it scrolls just fine. What's up?

I know smooth scrolling escalades this probelm, but even with smoothscroll disabled in Fb, Mozilla 1.5 scrolling is noticebly much faster than Firebird's...
