Waooooooow, Ample SDK

Ample SDK, a must-see:

Very, very impressive. Sincere congrats to Sergey Ilinsky and his team.

Ample might use a lot of standards to produce what it does produce, which is good (and bad). However is there anything Ample does that other JS libs do not?

It is somewhat different. Ample SDK doesn't use standards to produce what it produces, instead it makes certain standards usable for application developer cross-browser thus letting developer write application code against standard APIs rather than proprietary (and incompatible) ones. As you correctly noticed it indeed does not do anything more than other JS libs do, still it creates a consistent standards-based coding experience with proper usage/separation of JS/XML/CSS technologies.

well, it sucks a bit: it doesn't use native xul elements under Firefox, and it replaces it by an horrible html tags soup.

So we loose all advantages of xul: performance, accessibility, box model etc...

Too bad it doesn't look native.
