Here a typical display offering to download the latest browser software:
|This web page requires one of the following up-to-date browsers:|
|Click the corresponding browser icon to download the latest free browser software, or click the browser name for more information.|
|Google Chrome||40.0.2214.91||with the Java 1.8.0_40 JRE (Java Runtime Environment). Frequently automatically updated. Has no edit source button. Slow starting when it fiddles with a proxy. Displays CurrCon prices correctly. Poor downloading — it hides the fact it is doing so in the bottom left corner. Often downloads without you asking. Handles foreign language sites particularly well since it integrates with Google Translate. Best for interacting with Google. BrowserMark rates this as the fastest browser. Good for ecommerce. Can’t print white writing on a black background.|
|Firefox||36.0.4||with the Java 1.8.0_40 JRE. Its support of Java is erratic. Most widely supported next to IE. Many add-ins. Very fast rendering. Weak on table rendering. Best for printing. Fairly slow to start up. Often stalls on first page from a new site. Must hit reload.|
|SeaMonkey||2.33.1||with the Java 1.8.0_40 JRE. Similar to Firefox, with integrated Email.|
|Safari||5.1.7||with the Java 1.8.0_40 JRE. For both Macs and PCs. Cannot get it to run Java. Some rendering problems. Simple and stripped down.|
|Opera||28.0.1750.40||with the Java 1.8.0_40 JRE. Latest version cannot view some sites. For printing, I flip to Firefox. For ecommence I flip to Chrome. Some sites claim they do not support it. Not good for filling in forms or web commerce. Many sites are incompatible. Light and fast. No longer lets you configure your own editor. No bookmarks. You must click every Java Applet instance to view it. Implements SPDY for faster communication.|
|IE11||11.0.9600.17501||with the Java 1.8.0_40 JRE. Not recommended. This browser is hopeless at Java, especially the 64-bit version. However, some websites will work with no other browser, though many work on everything but this eccentric browser.|
You may not use either of Oracle’s Java coffee cup logos, either the old style or the new orange style on your own projects or site. Sun reserve them for their exclusive use. There is a copy of the orange logo in C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8.0_40\ \lib\resources.jar called JavaCup32.png but you may not use it in your applications.
Sun has 22 logos for customer use. Most require that your program pass a test suite. The Jump To Java logo, the Get Java logo and the Get Java Powered logo merely require that you use Java on your website. You still must get permission first though.
However, you may use Duke and variations freely without permission.
