Ok, I am no MAC user and absolutely no MAC expert, so if you have other
or additional experiences please write to
Microsoft Internet Explorer
You can select whether the Explorer should use its built-in Java Runtime
or Apple's runtime which is called MRJ. Java 1.1 applets are working only
if you have installed the MRJ and selected in the IE settings to use it!
NEW: I recommend the MRJ 2.2. It is much more faster than the old version,
You can either take Explorer 4 or 4.5, both versions are working excellent
with the MRJ.
If you are still using the MRJ 2.1 early access 3, you have to upgrade
to the final version to get it working with IE 4.5!
To install the MRJ you must have at least MacOS 8.0! (There is a tricky
solution to get MRJ running even with MacOS 7.6.1!)
Explorer for MacOS
Netscape Navigator/Communicator 6.x and Mozilla 1.x
Netscape 6.x and Mozilla 1.x should work with Java 1.1 applets when MRJ is installed.
NEW: iCab - the new Java compatible browser for MacOS
iCab is a new Java compatible browser for MacOS.
Go to the
Netscape Navigator/Communicator 4.x
Sorry, I could not figure out any solution to run Java 1.1 applets with
Sun's HotJava browser
Sun's HotJava browser uses also the MRJ. To run it you have to get and
install the MRJ first!
BTW: This configuration is untested and it is maybe a very tricky installation!
