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.

One of the things mozilla does not have is a full widget set. It sais so somewhere in the docs. They just created a widget set for a web browser and mail client. The even mention that developping a full GUI widget toolkit is huge and that there exists others that do that like swing.
