I really don't get the policy of not allowing java applets in browser. I mean, I understand that the java does not run automatically for security reasons, but it seems that there is actually no way how to allow to run applets manually either ( which I know that are not malware ).

Is there a way to do that ?

... I'm fighting this problem all the time last few years ... I'm almost never able to run any applet even If I set security setting as low as possible, update java plug-in accept all certificates and other obfucations ....

this obsession with security which kills functionality is really ill. Why the hell such educational things as this physics applets should suffer, because few commercial companies fear that they will be hacked.

  • I have never and still don't have problems running Java applets in a browser. Chrome and Firefox might block the content by default, but you can unblock the content, I use Java applets in those browsers daily. – Ramhound Jul 17 '15 at 13:22
  • According to support.google.com/chrome/answer/6213033 Chrome version 42 and higher doesn't support NPAPI-based plugins, which is needed for Java, Silverlight, and Unity. – Barmar Jul 17 '15 at 18:45
