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.

#25 XUL Specification?

BTW, is there any authoritative XUL specification? I failed to find one at the website. The one the link in this article ponits to is incomplete and/or obsolete. Most chapters are simply missing. This well may be the website maintenance issue, but of those available, say, Widgets chapter is marked as being 'under construction' and does not document some widgets (at least, Tree). XUL Programmer's Reference Manual seems to document API as for 2001, and since that there was at least one significant API change (prior to 1.0 release).
