The fix for the new plugin can make use of the showDocument method in the Config class since it is being implemented at the java level.
Instead of using IE specific interface function to open the java.com page, we can use the ShellExecute windows api so that the user's default browser will be used to open the java.com page.
Inconsistancy should be fixed, so that both links bring up the same browser.
There is seperate RFE to use Default Browser instead of IE, so which one we use should depend on if that RFE is implemented.
