There is still a plugin (extension) for Mozilla based products, that 
enables use of Python in products like Firefox:
http://pyxpcomext.mozdev.org/

Mark Hammond's Python/Mozilla work has enabled products like Komodo, 
Miro (Democracy) and the OLPC project to use Python as a major driver 
for consistent cross-platform GUI applications.

Personally, I believe XULRunner has a lot to offer for Python GUI 
development, I'm currently finishing up some documentation steps to show 
off how to use it specifically for Python (I'll post it to this list 
when it's finished).

Cheers,
