   19: (XML-based User-interface Language), XBL (eXtensible Binding Language), and RDF (Resource Description Framework), as well as Gecko,
   20: Mozilla's rendering engine, and other technologies.

   22: <p>The Mozilla development framework also makes use of programming languages such as JavaScript, C++, C, Python, and IDL (Interface
   23: Definition Language), plus framework technologies such as XPConnect and XPCOM, Mozilla's component model.
   24: 
   25: <p>In addition to Netscape's Mozilla-based browsers (Netscape 6.x and 7.x), the Mozilla framework has been used to create other browsers
   26: such as Galeon and Chimera, and chat clients such as ChatZilla and JabberZilla. Developers have also used Mozilla to create development
   27: tools, browser enhancements, and games, as well as many other types of add-ons and applications.
