[REBOL] Re: REBOL Web Browser Plugin (Alpha) - Volker's suggestion

From: sterling:rebol at: 11-Jun-2001 10:59

A _real_ plugin would draw directly into the browser window. That is a lot harder than this simple plugin that we have devised. We do want to do the complete plugin but thought that tossing this out to the community would be a good first step. The benefit you get with the plugin even now is that you can use an <EMBED ...> tag in you HTML page and you can get a REBOL program to pop up as yo uview the page. This also bypasses the blank page/stranded browser problem. You can't do this with a simple file association nor does it seem that the plugin can handle both situations by itself though we may be missing something. Sterling
