Navigator for OS/2 Warp

Sound Sculptures work just fine with the June, 1998 release of Netscape Navigator and the current IBM Java Development Kit 1.1.x release Go to Netscape and look for the 'Other Vendors' link.

Communcator for Linux

Sound Sculptures work just fine with 4.x release of Communicator for Linux Go to Netscape and look for the 'Other Vendors' link.

Communicator for Macintosh

I found these in dejanews.
Maybe something here will help, short of using Internet Explorer.

try this (it cured my problem with Communicator).  I was having locks
and freezes and then, while investigating, I found an extension in
the Communictaor folder that had not been installed.  Java

Just one thing to add to this discussion; please update to NUM 3.5.2.
It contains an update for CrashGuard to bring it to 3.5.1 and may help
in this instance as well.
Patchers can be found at:
Please let us know if there are any questions about the 3.5.2 updaters.
 : No Java in 68K builds of Netscape after release 3.04.
which seems sort of silly - since Mac users are the most likely to use
Netscape in favor of MSIE.  The only reasons I have MSIE on my 68040-based
Quadra 800 are that:i. I occaisonally need to run Java applets
ii. there are quite a few pages out there that cause Netscape to crash

for whatever operating system you use -

Download Netscape Navigator


Java Tests

 JDK 1.1 Demo Applets

Here are some official java applets from JavaSoft..
You should be able to run most of them  if you are set up correctly.
If you can run these, but cannot run the Sound Sculptures, I'd really like to know the circumstances. Tell me what browser and version you are using and what hardware platform you are on.  email Art Sulger (remove the anti-spam portion)
