Hi Tim, 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) Petr
