Hey all,
I find it very mysterious that I cannot easily find out what version of Java is supported by IE5. I cannot look at the options or help in my IE5 itself and I cannot find out on the M$ website. Netscape is the same way although I did not try as hard.
My question is: What version(s) of Java do these browsers support. Java 1.1 or Java 1.2? If they do support 1.2, what version was the cutoff?
Secondary question: Why is it so difficult to find out? :confused
All help appreciated,
Mark

To use Java 2 in most browsers, the client needs the correct plug-in from Sun. You can get it at http://java.sun.com
Reason it's so hard, it's Microsoft. Break them up.

Actually it's easy
You just have to ask the browser: Go to my page where I do just that with JavaScript and copy all the code if you want:
