Mozilla & Gecko clones "Recently, I have been pondering why is Firefox so darn popular? This is a question that I honestly ask myself sometimes, often while browsing the web from within the browser itself. The real trick is that there are so many different ways to answer this." More of the editorial here. Additionally, the first set of release candidates for Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 have been posted to the Mozilla FTP of nightly releases.

I use 15 extensions on my main profile (i have 4 fire fox profiles on my desktop) and i have writen 6 extensions (for intranet apps) so, over all, extensions/XUL are the appeal of FireFox/Mozilla/SeaMonkey for me. Like the browser fine, but the stuff you can do to extend it is amazing.

Oh, and the jREX project looks promising - embedding gecko in Java apps.

Thanks to Mozilla/FireFox developers!!!

Umm... Holy cow. I hate to say it but that sounds like a waste of memory if ever there was one.
