there is already a NPAPI plugin that can display documents in a
compatible browser like Firefox (don't know if IE or Chrome still
support NPAPI plugins).

however i've never used it and don't know whether it is enabled or even
installed in a default installation.

also LO implements the other side of that interface so you can embed
content using NPAPI plugins in LO documents and display e.g. SWF (Flash)
that way (which i've also never used, but i fixed a crash in it once
because some unit test failed :).
