I think that regarding XUL, the best example of what can be achieve  
with Erlang is the OneTeam instant messaging client.
If you do it well you can make it run the same from a web browser  
without installing anything or as a standalone client.
XUL is quite hard because it is undocumented, but you can build really  
nice interface with it.
