Hi Harjinder,
The differences are many below IE 5.5 and Netscape 4.7. Before that each browser used whatever SDK they wanted to. I think IE stopped at JDK1.1.4 and Netscape stopped at JDK1.1.8.
After IE 5.5 and Netscape 6.0 the differences are the same as each browser has stopped any JVM support. Therefore, you must use the JDK plug-in from Sun and everything will now work the same regardless of which browser is used!
Regards,
Manfred.
