A Java enabled browser is one which can download and run Java applets (plug-in applications which extend the functionality of the browser when loaded).

The mainstream browsers (Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera - if you download the version withJava) all support Java.

If you want more info, just ask.

IE & Netscape 2.0 were "Java-enablement". As features developed, within Java, do did the browsers. IE 5.5 and Netscape 6.0 are the most recent. Th older one will have problems wioth the newer Java applets. A history of Java-enable browser introduction dates is at http://www.javaworld.com/jw-04-1996/jw-, along with lots of other Java info.

Make sure that you are talking about Java, not JavaScript. Browsers run Java programs as Applets. IE & Netscape do not support Java 2 applets, but Sun provides a plug in that will.

JavaScript is code that is embeded in the HTML page. IE & Navigator both support JavaScript, but with some differences. I do not really know what the level of support by other browsers is.
