Software Demos

* Crocodile Clips is a software company producing educational modelling software. Our most recent release, Crocodile Maths, is based on Mozilla. This allows us to have a truly multi-platform product, and allows us to easily produce in-page live models i.e. embeded into a page of content which can contain text, images, flash, etc.. This is very useful for schools and teacher, allowing explaination and experimentation in the same document. To allow Crocodile Maths to be developed, Crocodile Clips had to implement SVG for Mozilla (mainly the work of Alex Fritze originally). Crocodile Maths makes extensive use of XUL, XBL, XPCOM, SVG, JS, DOM. The SVG implementation is now part of the Mozilla distribution. You can find more information at

* The Nokia Media Terminal. You can find more information at the Nokia terminal homepage.
