Finding XUL Applications

I recently got a new laptop and I’ve been spending some time installing software on it including several Mozilla extensions and applications. While doing this I’ve noticed that there isn’t one place where you can find links to all XUL applications, although there are several partial lists available:

– Mozilla products and projects pages
XULRunner Hall of Fame and Mozilla Hall of Fame
Map of the Mozpad Universe
dmoz XUL Applications page

None of these contains links to Firefox, Sunbird, Songbird and Komodo Edit (just to name a few examples). The mozpad list seems to be the most complete and current, so I’m planning to put some time into adding links and filling in any gaps on that page. If you’re interested in helping out with this, please feel free to post links to other XUL applications in the comments.

PS. I find it interesting that mozdev isn’t included in the list above, since mozdev hosts both application and extension projects. The problem right now is that we don’t have a way to sort out the application projects from the extensions, although there is a bug open to fix this.
