DHTML demos

Check out these IBM Browser Productivity Components:
- Spreadsheet
- DocEditor
- Presentation

Correction:I wrote that the demos where done in XUL, they are not. It's plain old DHTML. Sorry about that. They are still impressive.

Try the demos!

Even though that the demos aren't done in XUL, XUL is still very cool. XUL stands for XML User Interface Language. This is the cross platform language that the UI in Mozilla is written in. Designing UI with XML and JavaScript is cool and very easy!

They work in IE too. It doesn't seems they are done in XUL, but in DHTML :-(

This is very odd. This is actually the old HalfBrain applications which used to be IE only. HalfBrain was bought by Blox.com and Blox.com shut down a year or so ago. Now it shows up under the IBM flag. Still some good applications even thought they are not XUL apps.

The rich text editor is new and it makes me realize that Firebird now supports Midas. How did I miss that? I thought I was beeing cc:d on those bugs :-)

Yes, I have looked at the source now and there is no XUL.
Seems like a mistake ;-)

I wrote an HTML/CSS slideshow that uses :hover to switch between slides. It also has the benefit of being easily printed, modified, or customized. With a bit of work it can be wrapped up into a single file for easy transportation.

Yeah, URL for the HTML/CSS slideshow: http://segment7.net/web/slideshow.html

(Note: no JS used at above URL)

Surf Mind Musings, a recommended blog on Mozilla technology, user interfaces and more, points to some impressive cross-browser DHTML...
