Embed full Internet Explorer functionality in non-IE browsers

So, Microsoft uses ActiveX and Silverlight in its websites and browser. That means Microsoft is making silverlight a competitor for adobe flash plugins by using it in all its websites (udates and like). So, what if Internet Explorer is not the browser of your choice and you have to browse activex enabled pages. Then, here's the solution.

MeadCo's Neptune is a 100% Netscape-compatible plug-in which hosts Microsoft's WebBrowser control. It will work when embedded in documents rendered by WebKit-based browsers such as Safari for Windows 3.0 and Google Chrome, Opera 4.0 – 9.x and any Gecko-based browser such as Firefox and Mozilla, running on any Windows platform with Microsoft's underlying web componentry integrated. Windows 2000 / Windows NT 4.0 with Internet Explorer 4.0 core install is the minimum requirement.

Neptune can be thought of as gateway through which to launch Windows and Internet Explorer-specific web content from non-IE browsers.

MeadCo has developed Neptune to allow its products Zeepe, ScriptX and Security Manager to be deployed consistently right across a publisher's or organisation's Windows client base, even in cases where Microsoft Internet Explorer is not the browser of choice.

However the use of Neptune is not constrained to the deployment of MeadCo's products. Any Internet Explorer-specific DHTML content and/or ActiveX control will work in Neptune, limited only by the version of the underlying WebBrowser control.

First download the file from below as its free for single user requiring your e-id for download counts only.

Then, check if you can view Microsoft's Windows Update site shown embedded here. with other browsers beside IE or You can also check out these Neptune-embedded ScriptX 'Techie' printing and MeadCo's ScriptX homepage examples.


No waiting on

As a free user, you have to wait for some time in order to download from youtube. I've already given the solution for this in my previous post (Rapidshare Download No Waiting) where you downlaod by inspecting the element. This is a bookmarklet which you click when you're ready to download.
RapidShare AutoWait
No more waiting on
No staring at the clock.
No expired sessions.
No cost.

How to use this bookmarklet:
  1. Bookmark the following link (add it to your favorites): Rapidshare Autowait
  2. When RapidShare shows you the countdown timer, click the newly created bookmark.
  3. Go do something else without worry.
  4. The instant it is possible, you will get a download prompt.

IMPORTANT: Internet Explorer Users
For this bookmarklet to be helpful, you should permit automatic download prompts.
Tools menu > Internet Options item > Security tab > Custom Level button
> Downloads group > Enable "Automatic prompting for file downloads"

The RapidShare AutoWait bookmarklet does not eliminate the time delay; But it does eliminate your wait by letting you leave RapidShare's download page without worry. often forces "free users" to wait for a period of time before it is possible to download a file.

This forces users to either watch the count down timer, or leave the page hoping to return later.

Leaving the page comes with problems. Besides the mental distraction this causes, users are likely to return either too early or after a much longer wait than necessary.

Worst of all, if a user waits too long, the session will expire, causing the download to be canceled. The user is then forced to wait again.

SOLUTION: The AutoWait bookmarklet lets you leave RapidShare's download page with no worry.

• No worry that you will forget to return.
• No worry that you will wait longer than necessary.
