In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

I think XUL is both the strength and weakness of Firefox. Its strength because it makes Firefox so flexible, it's almost like a platform on which you can develop things like Songbird and Miro. And its weakness because it slows down Firefox a lot. The Firefox interface is entirely made in XUL and rendered by Gecko. Now that's a bit of overhead.
