Java applets won't work using
Google Chrome browser due to an announcement made by
Google on September 2013 planning to remove NPAPI support from
Chrome by the end of August 2015.
A quick fix to this matter would be
by just switching to another browser such as Internet Explorer,
Firefox, or Safari since this
issue is only related to Google
A second option is to enable or install
the Google “IE-Tab” extension plug-in, which will allow you to run an Internet Explorer
Tab within Google Chrome browser: Options / Settings /
Extensions / IE Tab enabled. An IE icon will
permanently be placed on the Google Chrome browser bar as shown
below with a red arrow:
From now on, every time you open and
use Google Chrome and access any website using Java, by just
clicking the IE Tab icon once, the current website with all its
pages will be allowed to run Java games or Applets without any
problem and within all the functionality of Google Chrome browser.
The IE Tab extension or plug-in can
also be downloaded at this url address:
