Four New Mozilla Sites Launch

Thursday July 29th, 2004

Four new Mozilla websites have launched recently. The first site, the Mozilla AOM Reference, guides Mozilla developers through the Mozilla Application Object Model (AOM), which is similar to the Document Object Model (DOM) but used to manipulate the Mozilla application itself rather than Web pages.

The Rumbling Edge is a new weblog that tracks the latest developments in Mozilla Thunderbird. The site is very similar to The Burning Edge, which tracks the latest Mozilla Firefox checkins, but is run by a different person.

Andrew Turnbull's Mozilla Network provides links to the latest Mozilla Application Suite and Mozilla Firefox versions, as well as a comprehensive list of links to older releases. In addition, several frequently asked questions are answered.

Finally, Firedfox, a parody of the official Firefox site, has been launched.

Do a view source on the 'AOM' reference page, and you're in for quite a shock. I would have thought this would be the perfect venue for an XUL interface. Instead we get row upon row of Javascript and tables!
