I only know a little about XUL. What are the chief advantages it provides
widgets? Better event handling?
I get the impression XUL is much lighter than Java, but it does not appear to
have stateful connections. Or does it?
I start having wild fantasies about building thin, lightweight
PowerBuilder/VisualBasic-like fancy clients running in Gecko browsers with
stateful connections to web servers and see the world as my oyster. :-)
So for the XUL n00bs among us (that would be me), what's it buying us here?
