Help Sun and Mozilla with new 'Pluglet' API Spec

Tuesday August 3rd, 1999

Akhil Arora of Sun writes,

"Help define the Pluglet API

A Pluglet is a Plugin that is written in Java. A draft of the Pluglet API specification has been posted here. We would like Plugin writers to get involved in defining the API. Does it meet your needs? What additional feature would you like added to it? What pet peeve of yours would you like fixed? Please talkback at the newsgroup [at] or the mailing list."

Well, all of them actually. As soon as you quit the browser they're gone. Plugins are installed in the browser's directory so that you don't have to download them more than once. At least what I think the previous poster was referring to re: ActiveX. I sometimes wonder how the Netscpe/Marimba Netcaster (aka Castanet for Communicator) would have fared if there'd a good, fast JVM available for it to run on...
