Yup, there are plugins now, but Netscape is talking about having no built in stuff at all. So if you have a plain browser on your computer and you go to play the rules roundup game, you will have to download a 20 meg plugin before you can play the game.

I may be naturally optimistic, but my understanding of this is that the standard Netscape package will still include Java support, but users will have the ability to update just the JVM, or specify the use of an external one. This should give the best of both worlds: Better Applet/JS/Browser integration than with the current plugin; no need to install a new "plugin" if you already have a JDK or JRE for the latest version of Java; applets can properly take advantage of version features by specifying their Java version
