Enabling or disabling Java in your browser



Java is a web browser feature that allows small programs called applets to run on a web page that you are visiting. This is often used on chat sites, giving the users the ability to chat with each other without having to download a seperate program.



Most recent versions of Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator have the Java technology built into them. The following instructions will tell you how to turn it on, or off.



If these instructions do not work for you then you will probably need to download an updated browser that supports Java. You can do this at the browser download page.
