12.10. Looking Forward

This chapter focuses on just one of many new trends outside of the original project mandate that emerged in the Mozilla developer community. Now that Mozilla 1.0 is released, its future direction will be shaped by the community itself, and Mozilla will become whatever the community would like it to be.

Remote applications are definitely one area of Mozilla development that will get more attention as Mozilla matures. Other areas that will probably also be noticed include development tools (some existing development tools are discussed in Appendix B), embedding, SVG support, and XSLT support.

Remember that Mozilla is open to new ideas and is always looking for contributions. If you can think of a way to improve Mozilla, or if you think of something that should be added, become a part of the community and help expand the possibilities of Mozilla and all Mozilla applications.
