ActiveX and VBScript support in Opera
Platform: All platforms
Opera currently does not support ActiveX, nor does it support VBScript. There are three reasons for this:
Opera Software AS is committed to supporting open Internet standards, recommended by the W3C and other organizations, something neither ActiveX nor VBScript, being license issued Microsoft technologies, are. In addition to this, ActiveX is a proprietary technology which is not available for alternative operating systems.
The second reason is much more simple: There's just not enough market demand for these technologies to warrant the cost of implementing them.
In addition, some reports raise the question of how secure ActiveX is. It has been claimed that ActiveX has serious problems with security, and some even say that the problem is an almost complete lack of security. The same concerns have been raised about VBScript.
