How Excel Integrates with a Web Browser

The distinction between Web browsers and traditional means of opening files on your network, or even your own computer, is becoming blurred. Internet Explorer 4.0 can be configured to replace the Windows Explorer or whatever means you have been using to run programs and open files in Windows 95.

This trend began with Internet Explorer 3.0, which can open Office 97 files directly. Netscape Communicator 4.01 has a similar capability. For example, if you were to open an Excel 97 workbook in Internet Explorer 3.0, your screen would look very much as it does in Excel itself (see Figure 26.2). All of the standard menus would be there. The only major difference is that Explorer substitutes its toolbar for the ones that you normally use in Excel. Netscape Communicator 4.01 works in much the same way.
