Q

ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer

What do you think about the use of ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer? As far as our corporate policy is concerned, should we use them and lower our browser's security level?


ActiveX is similar to Java. From a usability and programming standpoint, they are great. They are bad from a security standpoint.
