Thanks for the this info. But I'd be careful and currently not install
it: The Warning message at the top of this page says it all:
http://www.nongnu.org/gcjwebplugin/

"The current version does not provide a security manager capable of
handling Java (tm) applets. Applets have UNRESTRICTED access to your
computer. This means they can do anything you can do, like deleting all
your important data."
