From Steven Michaud:
The Java Embedding Plugin is a utility that allows other web
browsers than Apple's Safari to use the most recent versions
of Java on Mac OS X. When used together with an updated
version of Mozilla's MRJ Plugin Carbon (included in this
distribution), the Java Embedding Plugin's functionality is
currently available to recent versions of Firefox, Seamonkey
and Camino. But in principle any web browser could use one
of the Java Embedding Plugin's two APIs to add support for
Java 1.4.2, J2SE 5.0 and (where available) Java SE 6.
What's new in this version:
- Work around design flaws in Microsoft Silverlight and Apple's JVM
to avoid crashes caused by a bad interaction between them.
- Work around a bug in Apple's JVM that causes occasional crashes in
- Work around a bug in Apple's JVM that causes the browser window to
become inactive (and to lose keyboard focus) if you open a signed
Java applet on OS X 10.5.X (Leopard).
