SQL Support in Mozilla
Mozilla's SQL Support allows applications to directly connect to SQL databases. A web application no longer needs to pass information through a scripting language, such as Perl or Python, in order to receive information it can use. The removal of the layer seperating applications and data simplifies the job of the programmer.
