    I noticed XMetal XMAX is running on IE but not on Mozilla firefox. So can anyone tell the list of browsers XMAX will run on. I read it will run on IE 6 and above. But waht about the other browsers? Thanks in advance.

    XMAX is an ActiveX control, so as such we only test in browsers that officially support ActiveX, that is IE only.

    I believe there is at least one open source project working on getting FireFox to support ActiveX controls. I am not sure if it is still alive though.

    Another option is to run IE inside another browser so that the browser's UI (in FireFox terms that is the “chrome”) is used with IE doing the page rendering inside it. FireFox has a plug-in called “IE-Tab” that allows you to do this. In this case you are still technically running your XMAX webpage inside IE. This is more of an end-user solution however, rather than something you could control.
