Mozilla was set up from the beginning to support design and development across multiple platforms and programming languages. To this end, a number of in-house programming technologies were developed, all based around an ideal of object encapsulation. Embedding Gecko necessarily implies acquiring a working knowledge of these technologies, including XPCOM, XPIDL, XPConnect, special string classes, and, optionally, XUL. The following provides a brief introduction to them. More information can be found at the mozilla.org site.
