Embedding Mozilla

Gecko allows third party developers to use the same technology as found in Mozilla. That means you can embed a web browser inside a third-party application, open channels and streams through the network backend, walk through the DOM and so on. You can even construct whole new applications using chrome.
If you're building an application that uses Mozilla technology, we'd love to hear about it!
Check out mozilla.org/poweredby for more information.
