The World Wide Web has emerged as a new application-delivery platform. In response, developers are offering users sophisticated Web-based Java applets that range from cybershopping carts to complex tools for genome mapping. These applets give you application functionality without taking up space on your hard drive. But trailing behind the applet bounty are new usability questions. A major one is how to make applet navigation seamless in the Web browser domain. Java applets are programs you write in Java and integrate into your Web page. Although applets can provide functionality similar to traditional applications, the applet code need not be installed on the users' hard drive. Instead, the applets execute Java-compatible Web browsers. Unlike standard Web pages, which users simply visit and browse, applet-enhanced pages let the user manipulate applet components and dynamically interact with information. The author discusses tools, techniques and concepts to optimize user interfaces
