What is an ACTIVEGSXML file?

ActiveGSXML files are Apple II/IIGS software disk images that can be run using the multi-platform, multi-browser Apple II emulator developed by Oliver Goguel. ActiveGS comes in two forms: a browser plug-in, and the other is an app that you can download via the App Store. You use the plugin to play games in the Waterfox Classic browser. The plugin uses XML coding language, so by modifying the default.activegsxml file in a simple text editor, you can define which disk image to launch.
