The goal of BBMozLib is to provide a way to render XUL or HTML pages directly into an off-screen buffer that can be rendered with the 2D, 3D, or 4D API of your choice, and to make this as simple as JavaScript programming. It is to provide a platform-independent and convenient API for embedding Gecko into graphical applications like games. It features eye candy, ease of use, and i18n support. It can make parts of the GUI transparent, works in different resolutions, and has a wide range of widgets. By using existing technologies like HTML, the programmer is released from the burden of placing widgets. Glitz support is planned for when the API is stable and frozen.

Fitz is a window decoration for KDE that allows you to work (or play) faster. Unlike other decorations, it does not have a title bar above the window. Instead, it puts the buttons in the menu bar. As a result, it lets you get to a menu item by ramming your mouse into the top of the screen. If you click on the window frame, the mouse will jump down into the middle of the menu bar and Fitz will generate a click. This effectively puts the menu bar at the top of the screen like Mac OS does.
