Firefox architecture

I have been browsing through the Mozzilla source and have been impressed
at the level to which javascript decends. Clearly there is a lot of
javascript that ends up embedded in the binaries and not as stand alone
ASCII scripts. Anybody know how this works?

Well, how about checking www.mozilla.org, look at
http://www.mozilla.org/docs/
and in particular at the links about XUL and XPCOM. With Mozilla the
interface is not written as HTML scripted with JavaScript but as XUL
scripted with JavaScript.

The zipped version of Mozilla, rather than the pre-packaged installer,
ships with a free-standing Javascript interpreter. This is the Mozilla
package for building applications. It even comes with a library for
accessing the file system.
