I can't resist..................

    ask Steve Ballmer,

I think it is one of those "..........when hell freezes over" kind of 
things for him/Microsoft.

Active-X by design, and from the www server, downloads/installs complied 
object code (dll's) onto the machine that is running the browser that is 
attempting to use the Active-X component.

Fortunately for users of browsers other than IE, Microsoft itself is 
moving away from dependence upon Active-X in part, because of security 

If you happen to use IE7 you are probably aware that there is much finer 
grained control of which Active-X components the user wants to 
allow/disallow (appropriately named "killbits").

Here is the url to a www page that discusses the (basic) concept:
