Exactly. In fact, you can call the MOZ activeX control through an HTA (Hypertext Application) so it doesn't have to be built into a program at all.

I put the following example together in 5 minutes (save it to disk with an .hta extension)...Windows only, sorry:


Top frame is Mozilla and bottom is IE. You must register the control for it to work just like you do with 'Comparator' or 'HTML-Kit'. I plan on making it prettier and more functional in time.
