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.

Of course he's entitled to his opinion. I'm hoping you don't agree...

I also agree with quite a few of his points - in fact, I've ranted about them in newsgroup posts and in forums. That doesn't mean the article is any good - one could make the same points better with less words and less hyperbole.

Hixie's bug is either invalid, or at best it could be a meta bug to track a whole bunch of issues, which should all be separate bugs. If filing general bugs about the website did any good, I'd file more of them, but it doesn't. As it is, the only people currently working on website bugs are volunteers, who can fix minor issues within single pages ( folks have said they are aware of this, and a group is apparently going to be set up to address the issue).
