Mozilla

Mozilla started out as a redesign of Netscape’s browser but ended up being more than anyone expected. It became an effort to develop a component-based architecture and framework for a development environment, on which Mozilla, the browser, was then implemented. Because of this underlying framework, other applications could use bits and pieces of Mozilla, or the underlying technology, for their own efforts.

Right from the start, Mozilla incorporated the use of RDF/XML to manage all TOC- and other tree-structured data, such as the favorites list, sidebar, and so on. As stated earlier, it was through Mozilla’s work with RDF/XML that I was originally introduced to the specification—an introduction that colors my view of RDF as more of a “practical” specification then one necessary for Semantic Web efforts.
