Hallo. I've been trying to load the following page containing some Java applets http://www.slu.edu/classes/maymk/banchoff/Grapher2D.html Safari and Firefox don't load any of the applets (I just get an "Error" message with no further detail) while Google Chrome has no problem loading the page and each of the applets. I wonder if Chrome has a special plugin for java (in chrome://plugins it says that it has a Java Plug-In 2 for NPAPI Browsers ) allowing it to make a workaround to a system wide problem in java for mac. I've also tried to get to the page with Windows Xp via Parallels and everything is smooth and fine. Several other java applets on other sites show the same problem. I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.4 with Java 1.6.0_20 installed.
