There is great consternation amonst users and some developers about
the deprecation of XUL in Firefox and some derivatives, because many
useful extensions would be made incompatible.

It would therefore be great, if GNU hosted (or at least linked to)
both the XUL-compatible extensions, and those that support

The Firefox-derivative Waterfox browser project has decided to keep
support for XUL ongoing.
