Are You In The Right Place?

Web Developer? This wiki is concerned with development of the Gecko browser engine itself. If you are a Web developer (building Web pages, sites, apps, etc.) and have questions about (X)HTML, XUL, CSS, DOM, or JavaScript then go to the Mozilla Developer Network.

Want to hack on Gecko? The Developer Guide is probably what you are looking for.


Feature Planning / Specs

Most feature planning should happen in Bugzilla, but for some things it's easier to map out a spec on the wiki first.
