Have applets become obsolete?

They are still fully supported by Java.

They are no longer widely used on WWW.

AJAX JavaScript, Flash, SilverLight etc. has taken that

They are still occasionally used for signed code with
privileges on client PC.

I keep reading things like the above. But when I search
the net to find any real simulations done using the above,
I am not able to find anything close to the quality I find
using Java applets.

Take a look at this web page:

Amazing stuff. in JDK 1.1, and still runs very well,
and very fast. And other web sites like the above exist.

Anything close to the above using Javascript? All what I've seen
so far with HTML5/Javascript are toy applications.

btw, Mathematica now allows one to make an 'applet' that
runs in a browser, using a plugin (free), just like a Java
applet. No need to download anything.

So, for simulation that needs to run on inside a browser, and in
particular for scientific applications, I think that is the best choice
now for me. But Mathematica is commercial product and closed source,
and that can be an issue to some.

Check the Mathematica demonstration web site for many Mathematica

You could do the same things in Flash or SL.

And they can also do some rather amazing stuff in JS today.


If they can decode video then i think they can show math stuff
as well.
