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.

This sounds like a powerful vision. It will be a lot of work. Especially since the platform should also scale down to smart phones. I hope Mozilla will be able to leverage enough interest and manpower to pull this off.

Is this just the personal vision of Brendan or is the plan adopted by Mozilla itself?

PS: Brendan, I like the prototype sytem in JavaScript. The language is quite underrated.
