Another Article Regarding Mozilla's "Reawakening"

Another article on Gecko's burgeoning acceptance...

Mpt writes, "PCWorld On-line has an article on Gecko. Trouble is, it's full of simple mistakes: `Gecko will power the Netcenter Web site' (eh?); `Netscape officials are tight-lipped about specific Gecko features' (really? I thought Gecko was open-source!); `So far, industry leaders haven't embraced Gecko' (industry leaders? are PCWorld expecting Microsoft to use it, or something?); and last but not least, `NeoPlanet also led development of an ActiveX control ...' (oh dear, not that again).

I've written to PCWorld suggesting that they, ah, improve the truth quotient in the article -- but I'm not holding my breath."

I thought XUL was NOT part of "Gecko". The "Viewer" app is a bare-bones shell for the Gecko engine and there's no XUL. The browser as a whole (apprunner for now) uses Gecko to power XUL.

I could be wrong, I just work here. The term "Gecko" has been adopted by marketing and may no longer be limited to the layout engine as we know it.
