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.

"It's not like this website is a public park or something; nobody's obliged to provide the trolls with means of expression. If somebody consistently abuses it, why don't mozine admins just kick them out? Cancel the account, ban the ip, etc."

I take it you are referring to geraldb. He's not a troll, he just happens to have a minority opinion. As long as he doesn't start throwing around gratituous insults, posting huge amounts of rubbish or doing something else that would seriously disrupt the discussion or offend people, he can keep his account.
