I've developed a web site which uses XMLHttp for Ajax implementation. However, I read it some where that, XMLHttp is depending upon ActiveX controls to be enabled. My question is, how can my users disable ActiveX controls?

Thanks!

As do not any of the non-Microsoft browsers: Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, and so on...

So that means XMLHttp is not a safe method to use because users may disable the ActiveX controls? Does it mean it's better to use the hidden frame technique?

Thanks!

They could also turn off JavaScript. If you want your site to be usable no matter what the user does, limit yourself to pictures of kittens.
