Q: Why has TinyTERM AX for Web been discontinued?
A: TinyTERM AX is based around ActiveX controls that only run in Internet Explorer
version 8 or higher. With the release of Windows 10, Internet Explorer and ActiveX have
both been deprecated, meaning no further development will happen. This limits the
usefulness and lifetime of TinyTERM AX. Active development on TinyTERM AX ended with the release of
version 4.11.0 in May 2017.
Century Software has released TinyTERM Plus for Web
to replace TinyTERM AX. Because it does not rely on ActiveX, TinyTERM Plus for Web will run
in any modern browser, on any desktop operating system. Users are not tied to Windows or
Internet Explorer when using TinyTERM Plus for Web.
