I said the same exact thing in 1999. I got involved w/ Mozilla for this
*very* reason - building remote xul apps. My first Mozilla app was 100%
The main problem that kept coming up is access to xpconnect from remote XUL.
I believe the future of Mozilla development will be done by hybrid
developers. Client + Remote.
php/html -> php/xul
So instead of using HTML as the web app user interface, things will move
