Project Details

Project Description XULRunner is an Internet technology runtime similar to Java and .NET runtime. What makes this different from the other two is that it does not restrict developers from programming in one language like Java runtime. XULRunner allows developers to write programs in any language that Mozilla web platform can support. They are the following:

  • HTML
  • SVG
  • XUL
