Default Java-enabled Browser???

Please Login to Remove!

I have been trying to access some sites that display this type of message: You need a java-enabled browser"

I cannot go to these sites even though in browser settings, I have checked "Support Java Script"

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Java is not JavaScript, so enabling that functionality does nothing for Java applets on websites.

since the OS is based on Java, one would think that it would be natively supported. however, to be honest, i've never tried to load a java-enabled webpage. i'm not really sure if your supposed to be able to load java applets on a webpage or not, or if there is a 3rd party add-on that would enable it.

An applet is not a J2ME application, although written in Java, so I don't imagine it will work.

Gilberto, I was having a similar issue. Im not that savvy or a techie, so if I'm incorrect, pardon me. I also checked "support JavaScript" and after that, I had no problem accessing the Java sites. I just accessed the www.gotomypc.com with no problem. Perhaps there is an issue with you device. In my "browser configuration" I have everything checked except "allow JavaScript popups". hope this helps

I too have a problem visiting sites with Java. As I'm out & about I'd like to go here and find out which way the tornado is heading.

Anyone have any ideas? (Java/browser related, not tornado chasing/fleeing.)
