ActiveX Mozilla Control

Posted by Mike on November 10, 2003 4:01 PM

An ActiveX control using Gecko:

"The Mozilla control is an ActiveX control that encapsulates the Gecko layout engine, allowing it to be used in any ActiveX container. Developers can use any ActiveX development tool such as VB, Visual C , Delphi and even Internet Explorer to embed the Mozilla ActiveX control into a form."

At this stage, unfortunately, it's missing a few things the MSIE renderer includes in embedded settings, like being able to resize text and (apparently) retain cookies. So while Newzcrawler can use it, it isn't as nice as using the IE control.

One to watch, anyhow.
