Java can do it but you have to do some special things like using Netscape's Capabilities API and signing the applet. Active X can certainly do that but it is not my area of expertise. If you want more details on Java solution, let me know.

Unfortunately there is no common solution for NS and IE. You would have to use different approaches. With Netscape you need to use Capabilities API and sign the applet. With IE you probably only need to sign the applet. Ways to sign applets from NS and MS are completely different (and they require different digital certificates).

The details can be found in the article

Let me know if you need more info.

Since it don't have common way to solve it, can it still be using one applet to let IE and Netscape work with it?

if can't, is it possible to detect which browser we user by assigning diferent applet for it ?

Go to this site :

This is by far the best site I have found that explains what is signing applets and every step that is required. Here you will find how to program for Netscape and IE . Yes you can detect how to find what browser you are running in it is very easy.
