In Notes 9 there will be a notes plugin for web browser available.
This plugin opens any notes database inside a browser window with all the notes client functionality.
There are many situations where the notes plugin could be the better choice, then using the notes client.
First example:
In a company where most of the applications are browserbased, the users have no other client to use for access few notes databases.
Second example:
A company would like to migrate form notes client to browser based notes application.
Using the notes browser plugin switching from notes client to browser can be done before the last template is extended with xpage capability.
Unfortunately the notes plugin on the client must be configured for the user (userid, names.nsf, notes.ini)
I do not understand why.
When i access a notes server with a web browser, i'm authenticated.
The server knows my notes name, he knows where is my mail database and so on.
So, IBM should adapt the notes plugin, so it does not have be configured.

@Marius, how do you propose IBM handle single sign on via web browser if there is no notes client installed on that computer.

The way I understand it, at least notes client have to be setup so that they know where your mail file is located.

There are many solutions for sso in a windows/domino environment.

For example you can configure your domino server to use the windows authetication for access notes databases with internet explorer.

There is no need for any notes client installation.
