constraints on launched applications ---- Ramesh

P: n/a
Hai All, I am wondering if helper applications launched by a browser
are restricted in any sense, i.e. read/write files, connect to network,
etc. Is there a distinction in the capabilities of an application that
a user can launch versus one launched by a browser because of the
content-type received.

thanks. ramesh errabolu

No. Note that the user launches the application in both cases, just via
different methods.
