Re: Plug applications into browsers
I had wanted to use MSYS to develop for the other platform. Most of my
experience is with WIN32 API, ATL3/COM+ and DirectX on the other platform.

1 I want to develop on Linux only. Writing:
a) An Active X for Windows
b) Linux equivalent
c) MacOS equivalent through QT
d) Java applet (for all)
e) Some other platform bits I need not bother you with.
I suppose you might take example from one of the cooperate AV companies
who have an executable for each platform the target.
to run from within the "Netscape" browser.
What exactly do *you* mean by plug-in?
For example a stream client.
I will use Java but I want a backup.
On all platforms it seems possible to write a separate application but
in no real way integrated with the browser.
Obviously I am being a little lazy by asking if anyone has heard of such
a thing so that I can make use of that information however it seemed
sensible since I have looked, not found and will now head for the
development documentation for all browsers as a sensible path.
There are however other ways round which may be more realistic than a
plug in for each browser.
With Windows because of the way programs can be enclosed development
time is reduced a little. If this translates to Linux or perhaps just
per browser that is a benefit.
Realistically these questions should perhaps go to every single browser
mailing list but it seemed sensible to ask here first.
