Will Swing ever be in the browser's (Netscape or IE) native VM? Java is not being used for internet client side GUI work due to the browser not keeping up.
I wonder if IE will ever do it anyway, since Microsoft has that product.

I am pretty sure the later versions of the browsers support jdk 1.1.6 which I believe contains swing. I would not bet on this but I remember reading it someplace.

I am 99% sure that JDK1.1.6 does not contain swing. Swing is available to use in a jar file.
Speaking of which, is it legal to pick and choose which swing components you want, jar those up with your code and send them to the client GUI? I must cut down how long it takes the applet to come up.

I think newer browsers have JDK 1.1 *and* swing (even though Swing is usually only in the Java 2 stuff).
My experience with the plug-in has not been good. I've just been using 1.1 stuff with the AWT for my applets.
