Hrm, what's been going on since the last time that I updated this thing? It's been ten days or so.

Just got back from the first Mozilla Developers Conference. It was a blast. There's some horrible writeup at slashdot about it. It's written like copied their handwritten notes and called it an "article." The best part of the conference was to meet some of the people that I work with on a day to day basis and put faces with the names.

From the technical side I got to see some of the more interesting things that people have been doing with Mozilla. One was xmlterm. It's a terminal emulator written using Mozilla as the layout engine. It's neat because you can interpret resources from your command line interfaces as links. This means you can include inline images, links, icons, everything. It can interpret anything that uses XML. And the terminal emulation is good enough to run emacs.

Also, Ramiro wrote a glue code to use my Mozilla embedding widget as a view in Nautilus. We sat down and worked out out a couple of problems with the widget and started to figure out what he needed to get it running with all the functionality that you would expect in an intergrated browser. We were able to load web pages and browse around a bit without any problems. It's pretty cool to see that "just work".
