Mozilla Wins XUL Motor of the Year 2003 Award

Saturday January 3rd, 2004

Gerald Bauer writes: "The Richmond Post — a news blog chronicling the XUL Revolution — announced the winners of the XUL Motor of the Year 2003 award today [Friday]. Mozilla leads the pack with 98 votes (31%) followed by two Java XUL motors (Swix and Thinlet) and a Flash XUL motor (Zulu)."

Given that Mozilla is the only "XUL motor" on the award shortlist to actually support the XUL specification, it is hard to see how anything else could have won. Unless of course you use 'XUL' to mean any XML-based declaritive markup language, in which case you probably also use 'Java' to refer to any object-oriented programming language and 'English' to describe any language that uses the Latin alphabet.

"Does that include the footnote where he accuses you of censorship and being 'hypocritical to the whole concept of OPEN source'?"

That's his opinion and he's entitled to it.

As for the article, Hixie thought it was good enough to file a bug <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=227708>. And Andkon claims to have received an email from someone with an @mozilla.org address, who says that s/he "agree[s] with about 80% of your [Andkon's] points" <http://www.andkon.com/index.php?start_from=26>.
