Seeing as how we're allready offtopic. What's a "cross-platform javascript
framework", have you ever seen one that didn't run on
windows/linux/mac/openbsd/haiku? Lest it's built on Facebook/Google/etc as
a platform I think it's quite meaningless a statement. It also doesn't set
it apart from the mayor library's jQuery or my favorite Mootools. Quite
frankly it's goals seem no different from Mootools'. I don't see any magic
syntax. Re-usability is very possible using Mootools. It seems to be all
the hype about components but the syntax is practically identical to the
Mootools new Element('elementtype', { events: { click: functionname } ,
attributename:'attribvalue'}).grabs([new Element('div'), new
Element('span')]) syntax. I understand that a control is more than just an
element but there's nothing stopping you from creating a function that
produces complexer element structures.

Why is this framework interesting? What development should be done?
