Mozmill, which is a framework for running functional tests, can be used for any application which is built on top of the Mozilla platform. This includes Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and many others. But it’s not only possible to test the application itself.

Over the next weekend the next FOSDEM will take place once more in Brussels (Belgium). It’s a two day event completely devoted to the free and open source software. Mozilla has its own developer room again and offers a couple of interesting talks during both days. For the first time I will not only be a participant but also have my own talk.
