Subject Re: CouchDB and XULJet for development of desktop applications

Hi Pavel,
I assume this only works with Firefox - is that correct? I've looked
around and can't find such details.

If it is specific to Firefox I think you will have much reduced
interest as Chrome is becoming more important by the day and IE9 isn't
far away.
