Java and Chrome
By dannycoward on Sep 10, 2008
Google's week old Chrome browser is already stirring up interest, possibly to the detriment of Internet Explorer, and showed an early peak of 7% of some web traffic routes shortly after birth. The current Windows only download (a platform limitation at least one person finds embarassing but which we hope will be fixed soon) does not include default support for ubiquitous rich client technologies like Java or Flash (beware !).
But, as a foward looking technology, it only works with the very latest version of Java for the desktop - the much anticipated Java SE 6u10 release (get it here), which many people have described how to install.
And, of course, it works with the JavaFX Desktop SDK Preview, as Jim Weaver describes.
