Building RAD Forms and Menus in Mozilla "In Rapid Application Development with Mozilla, Web, XML, and open standards expert Nigel McFarlane explores Mozilla's revolutionary XML User interface Language (XUL) and its library of well over 1,000 pre-built objects.

The Mozilla Platform is such a tool."
