LXer: Cocoa widgets in Firefox, Thunderbird progressing nicely.

Published at LXer:

For most Mac users out there who make a living on the Web, using Safari exclusively just isn't an option. Camino is nice and all (it's my daily browser, in fact), but Firefox is unparalleled in its plugins and installed userbase / community. One common complaint Mac users have about Firefox is that it just doesn't feel like a native OS X application. This is a valid critisism, mostly because... Firefox isn't a native application. Firefox abstracts away a lot of the OS-specific stuff like dialogs, context menus, and "widgets" like buttons and dropdowns in order to be more portable across platforms.
