mozilla.org Releases 0.9.2.1

Tuesday August 14th, 2001

mozilla.org today released the source code for 0.9.2.1, which is the code that matches Netscape 6.1. This comes from the 0.9.2 branch, and is being made available both as part of the MPL license requirement, and as a way for third parties to easily use it to write compatible plugins and addon features to Netscape 6.1, as well as Mozilla.

You are replying to this message

"Active/X is just a component model, like XPCOM that Mozilla uses. The fact that IE plugins are Active/X components means that they are not only plugins for IE but plugins for ANY application in Windows and since IE is an Active/X component, it too is a plugin for any application in Windows. That's damn cool, since it means you can embed Quick Time into a Word document or do anything else you want with it."

You've been able to that for years with OLE (object linking and embedding).
