there is some effort on AltME to gring in the NS kind of plug-in, which
would work with NS, Mozilla, FF, Opera and other browsers, which do
support NS kind of plugins. RT tries to let the community to do the job.
Sadly, we are small community. I tried my best, gathered resources,
etc., I wrote to mozilla plug-ins newsgroup, but saw no reaction. We
need some C coder. NS kind of plug-in, from what I can understand abou
it, needs just no more than 10 - 30 funcs wrapping. So - if you know
someone willing to help, please let me know ...
btw - getting plug-in to work under FF etc. is hopefully rather trivial
task, but current IE plug-in simply is not done right, and then the real
job starts, to define, how it should upgrade, how is should appear, how
it should behave in other ways (as communication with browser is
concerned), if it should allow rebol networking or use only browser one
(I think not), how to detect proxy or allow various settings and more
importantly - what to do about security and View (VID) in iself, in
regards to pop-up windows (view/new layout [....] - and you have got new
window popping up above browser window and someone could misuse it)
