Hi Brett, I found this: 2) Why do browsers other than Netscape require a java applet? The web camera uses a technique called "server push" which, in theory, is available to any browser fully compliant with the the IETF RFC1521 specification. To see server push, your browser must understand the MIME type multipart/x-mixed-replace . All Netscape browsers since version 1.1 do support this MIME type, however AOL and Microsoft's Internet Explorer browsers are not fully compliant with the standard. A java applet is one way to get around this problem, although there are other ways. Newer versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer are supposed to support multipart/x-mixed-replace, but this is not certain. -- Graham Chiu
