MozCreator Project


Making applications for the Mozilla platform is a pain. Even with recent improvements like XUL Runner, setting up a basic build system for use in the Mozilla platform is not easy. How can you take advantage of all of the Mozilla platform's great abilities without spending hours getting set up? Using MozCreator!

MozCreator is a cross-platform, Java-based development environment for the Mozilla platform. MozCreator can set up all the necessary components to constructing your own Firefox/Thunderbird extension or simply a cross-platform application based on Mozilla Platform.
