    Question Does Chrome support ActiveX?

    Hi there,

    Can chrome host an ActiveX element using <embed> or <object> tags?

    I have done some searching and reports vary. Some seem to indicate that it once did, but now it doesn't seem to.

    If I do aboutlugins I can't see any mention of ActiveX.

    And if I put -allow-all-activex on command line it doesn't appear to make any difference.

    Many thanks,
    Jason

    Also found this which seems to suggest it does (or did):

    I don't think Chrome supports ActiveX for the time being

    Thanks - sulanso.

    Has anyone seen any mention of when or if this will be likely?

    Thanks,

    It had a partial implementation at one point, I believe. They at least had a plug-in claiming to support it. But that was only on Windows. I don't know if they'll ever support it fully though.
