General Development Echo2 is an open source Java web development framework that aims to simplify the development of web applications using the AJAX model. I read the online tutorial, downloaded the library and wrote a simple test application to see if Echo2 lives up to its promise.

I wasn't impressed.
Why does a demo written in (hopefully) standard Javascript only run on MSIE and FF? Why not Mozilla, or Camino (which even use THE SAME engine as Firefox)??

This is just sad. And I won't even start talking about Opera and Safari or Konqueror (those three also JS-compliant I presume)...

It states the following on the demo page:

"Echo2 is designed to work with Mozilla (including Firefox)"

So, where did you get the idea that it won't run on Mozilla?

In Camino I get only a white screen (i.e. nothing).

It's the same Gecko rendering engine all right.

I found no problems testing it with Mozilla 1.7.
