LEAD STORY

IBM NOTES BROWSER PLUG-IN FOR INTERNET EXPLORER
The IBM Notes Browser Plug-in allows Internet Explorer (32-bit) or Firefox web client users to access their native Notes applications directly from the web. Incredibly as it sounds this feature allows Notes applications to be run from within web browsers on Windows 32/64 bit desktops! As for security it still requires a Notes ID file and native ACL security applies. If the Notes app runs on Notes 9/8 Basic or 7/6 clients then it will work fine with the browser plug-in. Notes standard client (Eclipse) features are not supported. The Notes Browser Plug-in will not work if the Notes 9 client is currently running.

Remember Lotus Notes? It's Still a $1 Billion IBM Business
IBM vaunted software portfolio includes applications to help companies crunch huge amounts of data and manage their online storefronts. It also includes programs like Lotus Notes. Remember Lotus? When IBM paid $3.5 billion for the email pioneer in 1995, the deal was seen as a game-changer that plunged the hardware company more deeply into the higher-margin software market. Now, it's a symbol of the challenges facing new Chief Executive Virginia "Ginni" Rometty as she tries to spur growth in a software division that accounted for nearly a quarter of IBM's revenue and more than 43% of its pretax profit in 2011.
