Will ActiveX Ever Be Supported?

Monday September 28th, 1998

John Sheets writes in with a question about a topic that hasn't come up lately. John writes, "I was wondering if Mozilla will eventually include native support for ActiveX on the Windows side. Right now, as I understand it, you have to buy a plugin (from NCompass Labs) and specially convert the HTML files to be Communicator-aware. Kind of a pain."

Anyone know of any plans to accomodate ActiveX controls in the Windows port of Mozilla?

Netscape should keep to supporting systems that are truly cross-plattform. Active-X is a flop and Netscape participating in making it anything else would just be helping M$ to force their lousy OS on the world.
