I mean, merely anything you write in Java can (should) be incorporated into
Firefox in one way or another. Think of Firefox as a Java platform -- that

processes. Maybe Mozilla will one day become an all-in-one application.
Thunderbird and Firefox I was told have been combined to be called
Seamonkey. Time will tell it it will 'take'. Let's not forget that they
used to be joint in the Mozilla Suite, formerly known as Netscape.
