NGLayout ActiveX Control Operational in IE
Tuesday January 26th, 1999
Robert Gelb has two screenshots for us that will be of great interest to our viewers and, I believe, a great distress to Microsoft. The first is the NGLayout ActiveX control operational within a simple application shell, displaying the boxacidtest that we featured a few days ago on this site. The second is even more intriguing: two mozilla HTML windows displaying inside Internet Explorer 4. I think it's appropriate to mention what this _is not_. This is not a screenshot of NGLayout replacing the HTML renderer of IE4. But what it does show is how far along the NGLayout ActiveX control is, and how it is beginning its march to take over a realm that until this point was strictly MS domain. It means that application developers looking for an HTML, CSS, DOM, XML compliant application component will have to look no farther than the Open Source code of Mozilla. And they will gain the added benefit of using the same rendering engine used on all the other Mozilla platforms.

This just shows how powerful the Open Source effort can be...
I'll be much happier when my Intranet development can move over to this OCX. Not only will it be faster and much more capable on older machines, but I won't have to deal with the awful Microsoft documentation shenanigans!
