"In a way, this is like connecting a DSL line to a Commodore 64
computer. We're working on rewriting an arcade game from the early
80s using Mozilla technologies. By combining two different
technologies from two very different times, we hope to be able to
learn something new from examining a classic example of programming
in a new way."
"Our intention is to show that Mozilla has the ability to be
more than a web browser. Other demonstrations of alternate
uses of Mozilla like the Script Editor and XMLTerm already do this,
although these tend to feel more like extensions of the existing
Mozilla framework. A more radical non-browser application of
Mozilla would have the benefit of extending the discussion of
Mozilla as a platform and might bring new people into the community
who are interested in this new aspect of the project."
"In the 20 years since the arcade game that we are emulating
came out, many different versions have been created in many
different ways. We'll re-create this game one more time because
it's a programming tradition to take an old concept and rehash it
in new ways to learn more about a language or technology."
