Actually, I was just asking about your 'applet' experience in general. It's of course lamentable that one era in internet history is about to close.

I think now would be a good time to ask you about other 'applets' you remember using besides Flash. Programs like Java and Silverlight mainly. True, Flash was kind of a security risk but Java certainly was the bigger one of the lot. No wonder then why it was used rather sparingly compared to Flash. As for Silverlight, I suppose it was used even less and it was made by Microsoft so there's that going for it as well.>this thread again
Newgrounds Player, dude. Install it. Set it as the default way to open Flash files in your user settings. Newgrounds Player makes Flash immortal. Not to mention high res.
Oh, well I don't have much experience with applets, but I do have some basic knowledge of using them. I remember Java Web Runtime being absolute garbage, but that's what powered MathCats, so I can't be too mad at it. Flash was definitely the victor against Java in that day and age.
On a side note: AIR (or Zinc for Macromedia users) is pretty good if you're comfortable with Flash but want to distribute an SWF as a stand alone program for computers.
