XUL, From XP to Longhorn and IE
An Introductory Tour of Mozilla's XUL
Developing web applications, but fed up with bending HTML? Too busy to learn .NET? Be cool, use XUL (pronounced "zool").
"Longhorn": Huge Jump From XP
Internet Explorer has a slimmer look now, which reminded us a bit of Apple's Safari. Also like Safari, the version of IE included with the Longhorn preview offers pop-up blocking and a download manager - both firsts for IE. (The tabbed browsing that distinguishes Safari and Mozilla, among other browsers, remains absent, however.)
Ha, you think they're going to kill pop-ups? 60% of all Windows users don't even know what Windows Update *is*, let alone what it does or why they need to check it once a week.Comment by *snnrrk* at November 26, 2003 01:55 AM | Permalink
