You build your UI using Web tools, essentially you are building a  
pretty web page. Graphics, fields, buttons, images, anything you can  
do with a web page you and use as your Konfabulator UI.

They essentially support the standard webkit display routines and  
don't bother with the tools that create the UI, Adobe and others do  
that quite well, no need for them to re-invent it.
