ActiveX

Microsoft's ActiveX is often thought of as an alternative to Sun's Java language, an improvement on current plug-in technology, and a way to add interactivity to Web sites. Unlike Java, ActiveX is not platform-independent. It's a proprietary technology that is supported primarily by Windows versions of the Internet Explorer browser.

You can add ActiveX controls—the equivalent of plug-ins, or applets—to a Web page in all versions of GoLive, but you won't be able to view them in the Mac version. GoLive's Windows version includes more ActiveX configuration options than the Mac offering. On the Mac, you can link to a control, but that's about all.
