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.

Neil Deakin (of xulplanet.com fame) has collected some Ian Hickson quotes about XUL online @ <http://www.xulplanet.com/ndeakin/article/211> Note, that even Neil Deakin believes the blatant lies Ian Hickson dishes out. Here we go:

We stopped working on the XUL spec itself when XUL Planet started documenting XUL in more detail than we had time to do ourselves.

Most of the current XUL work is being done within standards organisations with strict NDA policies. If you are a ISO, W3C, ECMA, or IETF member let me know and I can show you the relevant links... I'm under NDA from one of the above groups, in which XUL is being discussed.

XUL _is_ in active development, we are currently taking feedback into account and are more carefully defining the XUL box model.
