    Man! Everytime I refresh my java applets with my new macbook, I have to restart whatever it is I'm using at the time, be it FF or Safari or even Applet Launcher, to just get my changes to appear.

    I tried testing this by changing the text of a button to include one more character. That extra character didn't appear until I quit the program...

    I've never had this trouble before?
    Any idea why?

    I remember having this problem in various forms with various browsers ever since I started developing small java applets back in 1996. (Edit: Am I really that old? :()

    Solutions were different, but some required a force reload by holding shift while clicking reload, and sometimes a reload could be forced by clicking in the address bar and hit enter. I haven't done java applets in a while, so things may be different, though.

    add meta tags to your HTML page to prevent caching.


    Go to Applications > Utilities > Java > Java 1.4.2 Plugin Settings

    Here you can enable the console under the General Tab (although this is inconsistent for me) - you can also clear cache from the Cache tab.
