Is there a way to find out what version of JVM my web browser is using? Thanks.

Call System.getProperties(), then call getProperty(String) with one of these keys:
java.vm.specification.version -Java Virtual Machine specification version
java.vm.specification.vendor - Java Virtual Machine specification vendor - Java Virtual Machine specification name
java.vm.version -Java Virtual Machine implementation version
java.vm.vendor - Java Virtual Machine implementation vendor - Java Virtual Machine implementation name
See the JavaDocs for System.getProperties() for more information.

SCJP 1.4
