Brendan sees Mozilla developing into an open cross-platform alternative to forthcoming Microsoft technologies such as XAML and is looking to collaborate with other open-source projects to make this happen." The GNOME project is mentioned explicitly. Brendan's message is part of a longer thread about the goals of mozilla.org.

Mozilla & XUL Technologies have an opportunity to to participate & possible dominate the 'look & feel' of these Apps & UI's for years to come. Does this scare you? Then, stop bickering and ask "What can I do?" to help make a Xplatform Free Desktop available to the masses. IMHO, this is _not_ about Gnome canabalizing Mozilla, but a logical evolution for Mozilla to become a Core Technology on the way to a Freedesktop. -Life/Love/Laughter
