This free online book explains how applications are created with Mozilla and provides step-by-step information that shows how to create your own programs using Mozilla’s powerful cross-platform development framework. It also includes examples of different existing applications to demonstrate the possibilities of Mozilla development.
Mozilla is not just a web browser. It is also a framework for building cross-platform applications using standards such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), XML languages such as the XML-based User-interface Language (XUL), eXtensible Binding Language (XBL), and Resource Description Framework (RDF).
The Mozilla framework is used to create Netscape’s Mozilla-based browsers (Netscape 6.x and 7.x), other browsers such as Galeon and Camino, and chat clients like ChatZilla and JabberZilla. Developers also use Mozilla to create development tools, browser enhancements, games, and other types of add-ons and applications.
