Can you please explain why you are so adamant that all of the Javascript on

is not responsible for the hang with the Chrome browser?

You are asking the respondent why they are "so adamant" about a claim they've
never made. That is a logical fallacy and rhetorical dirty trick known as the
"straw man" argument.

Perhaps the "dispatcher" method gets an exception and prevents the Applet
callback from calling notifyAll()? But that would surely only block one TAB?

Regardless, my decision to alter the Javascript so that the user's
"callback" JS function no longer has to call a "rendezvous" method but
rather return a true/false indicating end-of-stream for a reply/result-set
culminated in a solution that now works with every browser except Chrome.
Maybe a further tweak to the Javascript/DOM could get Chrome to obey the
rules? (Certainly appending the DIV child to the document.body *before*
seting its<object> innerHTML got IE8 over the line with Applet activation!)

Anyway, underneath all this is a single Java thread multiplexing output to
any number of TABs in a browser instance that constitute an Application, and
I think a lot of people would find that very interesting! Having said that,
to date, nobody could be bothered to tick a simple star so maybe no one

What? What star? What are you talking about? What does that have to do with
Java or Javascript? That comment seems so random and non-sequiturish. And why
are you so aggrieved about whatever a "simple star" is?

Oh, I get it! It's just that you can't wait till August when you and your

And thus you descend into simple trolldom. How is that a helpful remark,
