About Java

Java has caused more excitement than any development on the Internet since Mosaic.

People are excited about Java because of what it lets them do. Java was the first way to include inline sound and animation in a web page. Java also lets users interact with a web page. Instead of just reading it and perhaps filling out a form, users can now play games, calculate spreadsheets, chat in real time, get continuously updated data and much, much more.

Here are just a few of the many things Java can do for a web page:

  • Inline sounds that play in real time whenever a user loads a page
  • Music that plays in the background on a page
  • Cartoon style animations
  • Real time video
  • Multi Player interactive games

However Java is more than just a web browser with special features. All of these features can be integrated into browsers in other ways. Although HotJava was the first browser to include inline sound and animation, Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox support these features in several different ways.

Java is a programming language for distributed applications. It doesn't just allow you to add new types of content to your pages like Firefox and Internet Explorer do. Rather it lets you add both the content and the code necessary to interact with that content.
