Help writing a web browser plugin using c++.

I am going to write a cross platform (mac/windows) web browser plugin
for IE then maybe Safari. The plugin will use opengl to display some
images and manipulate them ie zoom, translate. Where is a good place
to find out how to do this? I am totally new at writing plugins, so
it would be wonderfull to find some tutorials and sample code. Every
think I seem to find talks about java and activeX. But I need to use
C++ for its speed and opengl support.

Every browser that supports plug-ins has gotta have a newsgroup
dedicated specifically to it. Try looking harder at the list of
available newsgroups. Narrow your search for the IE newsgroup in
the 'microsoft.publ ic.*' family.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
