Build interfaces with xml: XUL (cnet article)

This will really allow non-programmers to leverage mozilla. You could theoretically build a whole new kind of app that uses the gecko rendering engine and XUL to show the components. It would not even have to have anything to do with a "browser". For instance a web-ready editor :) Or an outline builder :)
Here's one quote from the article:
"There's a trend toward using Web-building languages rather than native code," LaGuardia said. "And we think this could really spark a programming revolution."
