There is no rms, there is only XUL!

IDEs are draining users away, but it’s not the classic fat-client IDEs that are ultimately going to kill Emacs. It’s the browsers. They have all the power of a fat-client platform and all the flexibility of a dynamic system. I said earlier that Firefox wants to be Emacs. It should be obvious that Emacs also wants to be Firefox. Each has what the other lacks, and together they’re pretty damn close to the ultimate software package.
(there’s a lot more in this novella-length post than just this, it’s definitely worth a read if you care about emacs at all.)
