Then why not CodeGear just create an object pascal to Firefox extension compiler and IDE, say Delphi for Firefox? It looks very interesting and promising to me. So far I found none has done this, CMIIW. The only drawback for this, is the application it produces will be highly depend on Firefox installation on the users’ machine. But, who does on earth not use Firefox anyway?
Then combine Delphi for Firefox with Morfik. We’ll have a complete solution for browser-based client application, both AJAX-based application and extension-based application. Each has its own advantages and purposes. Then welcome to the true rich internet applications! 😀
