Active X Is History

Remember Active X? The Microsoft Framework developed back before the millennium switch? Maybe you remember that message that used to pop up at the top of the browser asking you to install some kind of extension to enable use of some kind of feature which at the same time allowed potential hackers to run amok on your system? It turns out Active X support disappeared for Firefox back in 2008, with the release of FF 2. IE still supports it. I read a recent post about how it's not time to celebrate it's earthly departure yet, it's still in use, but it's like a remnant of a past that there's no longer reason to remember. Active X Is History.
