I picked up on Firefox too.  PrinceXML[1] (which is commercial
software) is kind-of a Firefox equivalent, and IIRC it's written in
some sort of interesting logic programming language.  It would be
fascinating to find out how many LOC it contains and how it compares
to Firefox in other ways (bugs, speed, maintainability, etc.)
