I am looking for a plugin for Firefox for viewing VRML content (*.wrl).

Thanks!

I'm confused -- it lists "none" as the plugin, but then lists download options
Web browser: Firefox/1.0 (1.7.5) (Plugin Help)

VRML plugin: none
Download VRML plugins: Cosmo Player, Cortona, BS Contact (not free)

X3D plugin: none
Download X3D plugins: BS Contact (not free)
does anyone know what's up


also, AmboyGuy I think your avatar is awesome -- I really wish the official logo showed the face of the fox -- I don't think it would be too hard to do (just have him twisted the other way, but keep the same outline as current official logo), as your avatar shows -- though I think the face would be more cuddly than your avatar

What the screen is saying is you have no VRML plugin on your machine, Download one of the links. The last one isn't free.
I don't use it, my machine lacks the horsepower.

oh, I see now

thanks for helping me to understand -- it's been finals this week and I ran into my first VRML site in ages (for fun, not for finals) and my mushy brain just wanted to see the darn .wrl file rendered

:D
