Java is one of the most pervasive programming languages on the internet; its popularity is caused by its cross-platform applications, relative ease of coding, and its ability to be run from browsers. Applets (think of them as mini-programmes) are used for all sorts of things, from chatrooms to games.
You need to download and install the latest version of JavaRuntimeEnvironment from Sun at the link kindly provided by Madman6510; this will allow you to install and use Java applets.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
