    This probably isn't possible, but part of my application uses a website that requires a plugin. My question is, is it possible to add a plugin that works with Safari to my Cocoa application so that my web view can use that plugin.
    This will be in the App Store so no Private API use please.

    Depends. If it's a WebKit-based plugin, yes.

    If you're not using a WebKit-based plugin (anything that works cross-platform), you'd have to install it into ~/Library/Internet Plug-ins and I doubt Apple would allow that.

    But legally you'd have to get permission from the plugin's author to distribute it anyways.
