    Default writting plugins in java->activex

    Hi

    I was wondering if google chrome supports activex plugins, and if yes, if anyone experiences writting one in java and then using ActiveX Bridge to make the dll.

    thank you

    Chrome does not support activex as fare as I know, but as not even IE8 supports, by default, activex, this would not be recommended to continue to use, I think most has realised that activex simple has to bad security...

    Not unless you can compile Java to a DLL.. (last I checked, the GNU Java native compiler project wasn't very far, anyway).
    But really, JavaScript is rather similar, it wouldn't take much to learn.

    I believe you can easily embed a Java applet in an extension, just develop your applet, prepare a HTML page with the applet embedded and open the page from your extension.

    Yeah, but you wouldn't be able to use Chrome APIs or anything without JavaScript knowledge. So it would be so much of an extension as it would be an application that happens to be able to used in Chrome.
