Not by themselves. You need the Java Plug-in for those browsers. Then
not only will they support Swing, but Java 2 also.
But you need to modify the HTML tags to use the plug-in. And
expecting that your users will have the plug-in installed in their
systems in unrealistic UNLESS of course, you are in an Intranet where
somebody dictates what's installed on the workstations.
As I said, the HTML file has to change to use the plug-in. <APPLET>
becomes <EMBED>
in NN4 and becomes <OBJECT> in IE4 and IE5. There's more, and the Sun
page on
its plug-in tells how. In fact they have an HTML converter that will
modify your <APPLET> tags so that the plug-in can be used.
It's all explained in Sun's site:
