That's the question that keeps coming up again and again. I get an email from some customer about this atleast once or twice a week. And my response is the same.
We provided Notes Browser Plug-in with the Notes Standard client (an option during the installation) only for you to install & use it to try. This is for you to see what it is, how it works and use it to test and ensure your applications work with browser plug-in. But once you have verified this, for the roll-out within your organization, you should use the standalone browser plug-in installation package.
The main intent of Notes Browser Plug-in is to give you a light-weight way to access your Domino Applications inside a browser, with iNotes being your primary mail access.
since you can access all your apps in the standard client along with the mail, you really do not need the browser plug-in.
It's upto you whether you need a browser access for all (Notes Browser Plug-in + iNotes), or desktop based application access (standard client)
Having both for all your users does not make sense and defeats the purpose of trying to go to all-web strategy, unless you want this during the transition phase, in which case, go ahead and roll-out the standard client with the Notes Browser Plug-in selected.
- the above gives a choice to the user as to what they want to use.
Please note that you cannot use Standard client and Notes Browser Plug-in at the same time on the same machine. You must completely exit out of one to launch the other. This is by design.
