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.
In a company where most of the applications are browserbased, the users have no other client to use for access few notes databases.
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.
