View Full Version : Is there a plugin to make ActiveX Code cross browser compatible

I'm currently working on a web application I didn't build. My current mission is to make it cross browser compatible. It has certain requests written in ActiveX. My question is, is there a plug in, or short cut (per se) to make this application work in all modern browsers.

For Firefox it looks like someone has done some work on it: http://code.google.com/p/ff-activex-host/ But who knows how well it works on the current version. And anyone viewing the page would have to install the plugin.

Even still the ActiveX code will only run on Windows based on computer. Even IE has pretty strict default security settings for ActiveX controls now.

I would recommend investigating rewriting it using modern technology.
