Which misses the point that XUL shouldn't be thought of as something that
runs in a browser, it's a stand alone cross platform component framework.
Saying XUL won't run in IE is like saying Cocoa or GTK won't run in IE or
Opera.  Safari doesn't run Cocoa either, it's written in Cocoa.  Firefox
doesn't run XUL, it's written in XUL, the underlying framework is just
easily exposed through Firefox as a launching mechanism.
