When will Java be gone from Internet Explorer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can still use Java applets (eg. games) in Internet Explorer 11 and Firefox ESR 52 -- the latter will no longer be updated to support Java after August. I know Microsoft and other companies announced an end-of-life timeline for Flash, but do you guys know when Java will be phased out of the Internet Explorer?

  • Hi,

    There are group policy settings switch off out of date ActiveX control blocking... Basically Java is already unsupported on unmanaged networks.

  • Well... I don't know what that means. Java works in Internet Explorer right now. When will it no longer work?

  • Hi,

    About>Internet Explorer will tell you which version and update version you have installed. You must be running an older version/update.

    Which website do you use to test your IE ActiveX Java JRT control? You may be using a Trusted/Intranet site... use the File>Properties menu in IE to find out which IE security zone the website is mapped to. navigator.platform will tell you the bitness of the tab.. about windows will tell you the bittness of your cpu.

    some ppl who have installed Java JRT from cannot get it to work on pongo. try for the latest news from Oracle and a test page after you have updated your windows version.

    Java JRT is a third-party activeX control in windows... I don't see it in the kill bits yet.
