JavaScript applets not work in Linux?

New to Linux, so pardon the stupidity. But do Javascript applets not run on Mozilla or Konqueror? Because I can't get any Javascript applets to run in my browser windows. Thanks.

Depends. If the webmaster is ignorant enough to make it "Best viewed with IE", even Netscape/Mozilla for Windows doesn't cut it.

It works fine on and others for me.

Javascript applets? Common confusion:-

Java = Java applets (yuk!). You must have Sun, IBM of M$ Java installed to run Java applets!

Javascript = browswer dHTML scripting. Browser scripting basically.

Javascript was named to ride on the back of Java's popularity at the time. Many people dont know the difference...
