XUL discussed at

Friday March 26th, 1999

From Joel Caris comes this news:

"This 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.
