    Can ActiveX run under Mac platform browser?
     

    Are you asking about Google Gears or activex in general?

    If you are asking in general then yes it can,but if you are asking about google gears then according to their website it should work on mac in browsers firefox and safari.

    HI wilson

      A connection to client side data source is possible, if the browser is configured. that is, setting the browser security level to mininmum or  adding ur site as a trusted site with minimum restrictions. Since data source uses the ActiveX component, it requires these special permissions.

    if u want an alternative to MS-Access for data storing, u can try with Google GEARS which  is a browser plug-in, provides full access to it's  Data Store.

    --------------------------------------------

    Happy Coding.

    Thanks.  Google Gears database api is exactly what i am looking for.  But the dataset function is too weak comparing with Microsoft dataset and adapter. 

    Can ActiveX run under Mac platform browser?

     

    Thanks
