What exactly is Active X?  I've never really looked into it.  Would it allow someone to use a program over the web? I'm asking because in VB 5.0 it has the selections at the beginning like Active X exe, dll, etc.

ActiveX is an application (usualy small) that integrated into a web page, and d/l automaticly by your browser. It's like a Java applet. It runs on the client's machine, like if it was a regular app.
