What's the difference between this and Shiretoko. Are there other "firefox 3.5" versions as well that I may have missed!

Xulrunner is not a browser, it is a library and toolkit used to build browsers and applications like epiphany and other apps.  It is provided for those who would like to build apps against it.  More info:

Thanks for that... on another note then - what is the difference between Shiretoko and firefox 3.5. Both exist as separate extensions.

Differences are mentioned here:

Shiretoko is better suited to RAM based /home use with some of it's changes from the official Firefox.

I am no seeing this extension in appbrowser or through the web interface.  Has this been removed?  If so, why?

I thought I had posted it's removal, evidently didn't.  But if someone is wanting to use a shared xul to build epiphany or another browser, xulrunner can be built then.  I didn't see the point in maintaining it until there is a use for it.  Most any Mozilla type of browser is going to be self contained anyway.

Ah.  No need to rebuild or repost.  I may need XPCOM for a project which I believe is part of xulrunner, but Im not sure yet.  If I do need it, I will build an XPCOM only extensions.  Thanks :)
