IE6 and navigator.plugin solution?

P: n/a
HI
I am wondering if there is a solution to the IE6 missing navigator.plugin
feature. would something like the OBJECT tag with the
type="applicaton/x-shockwave-flash" where one can count the methods and then
compare it to the type="" method count?

just wondering

Uh, Internet Explorer for Windows doesn't support plug-ins, but rather
program components embedded into web pages (though the Eolas lawsuit may
change that). The way to detect Flash is:
new ActiveXObject('SockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash')

See the MSDN for more information. Be sure to do object detection.

Though this is a possibility, most people use VBScript for this purpose.

However, perhaps a better way is to just include alternative content in
the "object" element.
