IE 11 is also built into windows 10. You can use that if you need legacy active x control support.

At some point I imagine some enterprising person will come up with a WebRTC and/or websockets version of a 5250 emulator.

I looked briefly and found one company but it uses a server in between the IBM I and the web browser to achieve its goal :(

Subject: Windows 10 Edge browser does not support Active X

We just learned that the new Edge browser in Windows 10 will not support any active X functionality and we use an IE browser TN5250 client to provide some users access to applications that we have not moved to browser version yet. I know 10 has just been released but has anyone come across a browser based TN5250 client that does not rely on Active X and also supports TLS encryption?
