(Disclaimer up front: I'm a big fan of the Mozilla Suite.)
Okay, I'm confused.
I understand that Firefox and Thunderbird have changed XUL toolkits, and
that this is one of the reasons why UI work on the suite has stagnated.
I *thought* this change was made to allow the use of native GUI widgets
within Firefox. This was one the reasons why I stuck with SeaMonkey
since I loved the central idea of the XPFE -- that you could produce
Moz-apps which would appear close to identical on all platforms.
Am I wrong? What can XPFE do that the FF/TB toolkits can't and vice
versa? Can anyone simply explain the differences to me, or at least
point me to a good web page on the matter?
