Yes, we do, even though things like Flash have become more fashionable now.

Perhaps you have without realizing it; otherwise you probably haven't visited enough web sites. Applets are more common on corporate Internets, where everyone has decent bandwidth and you can be sure that the users have an appropriate JVM installed.

Funny you should say that. I'm presently involved in a project that uses several applets. For a long time, the BBC News website used an applet to scroll headlines.

Since Java doesn't come pre-installed with Windows and the Java plugin is pretty large, it's something you don't use casually, but there are times when applets can be very useful.

I thought most (all?) of the big manufacturers include it - Gateway, Dell, IBM/Lenovo, HP, Packard, ... Not so, or no longer so?

Applets are back.
See PulpCore.
For Brazilians: PulpCore in my Blog

It allows Java developers to create modern-looking 2D web games with a strong focus on animation and positive user experiences.
