I have been playing around with ActiveX controls and I noticed that IE shows
the complete URL even though the download has been redirected. From a user
perspective its a bit unclear where the actual ActiveX control is downloaded
example can be found on (a self signed ActiveX control will be downloaded):
It contains the following <OBJECT> tag.
IE now shows a dialog ( http://www.brinkers.cistron.nl/activex.jpg )
indicating the ActiveX control comes from:
but it is actually downloaded from http://www.brinkers.cistron.nl
Its probably the correct behavior (by design) but I think it can be misused
in some ways?
