XUL discussed at News.com

Friday March 26th, 1999

From Joel Caris comes this news:

"This News.com article talks about XUL and the effects it might have on the web and application programming."

The article mentions the newest draft of the XUL spec, and also makes a curious comparison between Java and XUL.

Hi folks--I probably could have phrased this more elegantly, but it was exactly the cross-platform nature of Java and XUL that precipitated the comparison. Here's the original graf:

>>>In the cross-platform arena, XUL resembles Sun Microsystems' Java programming language. But Java requires a bulky Java Virtual Machine to make native code understandable to multiple operating systems. XUL promises to be far more lightweight.
