FYI, Firefox extensions can contain native code. Of course, you need to include a binary for every OS/arch/Mozilla version triple you wish to support.



I mentioned extensions; the first half of my previous job was spent on FF plugin development. Once in a while, one of us would get frustrated enough to try looking at how extensions are built for FF; never worth it. (Our IE guy was enviable in the sense that he only had to produce two DLLs, and got to work in his language of choice.)
