ActiveX, Firefox and Ubuntu are all free computer programs available online. ActiveX, a computer framework similar to Flash, can be downloaded alongside Shockwave from the Adobe website (see References). Firefox, a web browser made by Mozilla, is open-source, which means that users can make programming changes to improve the program. Ubuntu, another open-source program, is an operating system that uses the Linux platform. Playing ActiveX with Firefox on Ubuntu is not much different than doing so on Windows.
