   10: border=0></a>Mozilla is not just a Web browser. Mozilla is also a framework for
   11: building cross-platform applications using standards such as CSS
   12: (Cascading Style Sheets), XML languages such as XUL (XML-based
   13: User-interface Language), XBL (eXtensible Binding Language), and RDF
   14: (Resource Description Framework), as well as Gecko, Mozilla's rendering
   15: engine, and other technologies.
   17: <p>The Mozilla development framework also makes use of programming
   18: languages such as JavaScript, C++, C, Python, and IDL (Interface
   19: Definition Language), plus framework technologies such as XPConnect and
   20: XPCOM, Mozilla's component model.
   22: <p>In addition to Netscape's Mozilla-based browsers (Netscape 6.x and
   23: 7.x), the Mozilla framework has been used to create other browsers such as
   24: Galeon and Chimera, and chat clients such as ChatZilla and JabberZilla.
   25: Developers have also used Mozilla to create development tools, browser
   26: enhancements, and games, as well as many other types of add-ons and
   27: applications.
   29: <p>This book explains how applications are created with Mozilla and
   30: provides step-by-step information about how you can create your own
   31: programs using Mozilla's powerful cross-platform development framework.
   32: This book also includes examples of many different types of existing
   33: applications to demonstrate some of the possibilities of Mozilla
   34: development.
