Designers Corner

If you're looking for plug-ins for experimentation, one place to start is the Netscape site, specifically at http://home.netscape.com/plugins. Here you'll find plug-ins for 3D and animation, audio and video, image viewing, and business utilities, along with links to other plug-in vendors and suppliers like Macromedia. Another list, even more comprehensive, is available at http://browserwatch.internet.com/plug-in.html.

Although there is an ActiveX plug-in for the Netscape browsers, you might be well advised to avoid extensive use of ActiveX components unless your target audience is guaranteed to be using Internet Explorer on Windows machines. This is unlikely to be the case unless the Web site is on an intranet. If it is the case, however, ActiveX may be a good choice because the controls are very fast and efficient. They run natively on Windows machines, and are usually smaller than plug-ins.
