Internet Explorer is the embedded browser for the Windows platform. Firefox is the embedded browser for Linux platform (don't known about MacOS).
Firefox should also be an (the ?) embedded browser for the Windows platform.

I think that eclipse is going to offer this in the future. I'd assume that Notes 8 is just piggy backing that functionality.

Once Notes starts (has started) rendering HTML email using the IE engine, we're in the same camp with Outlook users as far as the potential for ActiveX (and other) IE related vulnerabilities. One HUGE security feature of the pre-Eclipse client was the embedded Notes browser (ecchk!) that would simply render the HTML email and nothing else.

Great idea.

That's what I wait for too! Not only because of security but also because of performance reasons (it's so f**** slow with the current embedded browser)

At least there should be an option to let you chose which browser"engine" to use. There are serveral solutions out there depending on IE as rendering backend.

To switch from IE to Xulrunner as the backend, you may edit the configuration file plugin_customization.ini by,
** adding one line of "com.ibm.rcp.ui.browser/embeddedBrowser=Mozilla" for the embedded browser,
** adding one line of "com.ibm.rcp.rte/RTEBasedBrowser=xulrunner" for the MIME mail viewer.
