    The Mozilla Foundation Wednesday announced a cooperative effort to standardize plug-in (define) functionality, ushering in a new era of multimedia accommodation on today's Web browsers.

    Together with Apple, Macromedia, Sun Microsystems and Opera, officials at the open source organization said they are expanding the scope of its Netscape Plugin Application Interface (NPAPI) to create an open source, secure and scriptable plug-in model.

    IE is experiencing a critical security meltdown that Microsoft has yet to resolve. The flaw, which allows crackers (define) to install spyware software onto Web servers, has remained unpatched since its discovery two weeks ago. Microsoft officials said they might consider releasing a patch out of its normal monthly schedule if customer demand warrants it.
