Hi folks,
Sorry if this question comes up several times a week, I suspect it does, but I could not find it posted. Can someone please tell me what browsers support Java 2 applets.
thanks in advance,
Anthony

Currently there are no browsers that support java 2 directly. All browsers can if you download the jre(java runtime environment). Once this is installed the browser (in a sense) does support java 2. However you will have to use object and embed tags to invoke the jre that is installed. Appletviewer is the only one currently that supports java 2 with the applet tag, but netscape 6 will have jdk1.3 support i believe.

I hope its helps, feel free to email me noahcarroll@juno.com

Thanks for the reply Noah!
Netscape 6 is running my Java2 Applets right now.
I need to brush up on my knowledge of the object and imbed tags.
regards,
Anthony
