The DOM: Core team at Mozilla cares deeply about Firefoxs high-performing Web rendering engine, Gecko. We aim for intelligent hardware utilization, excellent user interaction, continuous architecture hardening, & Web compatibility. We push the boundaries of what the Web is capable of. We do this by delivering outstanding implementations in Firefox of the standardized APIs, such as DOM, HTML, Events, Editor, Clipboard and so on. Web developers whose work is rendered by Gecko rely on these implementations for building modern Web experiences. Firefox itself also uses these technologies! The team works together to enhance our existing implementations & with the broader Web community to advance the capabilities of these standardized APIs.
