I often have to use Mozilla or Firefox browsers on other people's
computers, and quite often Java is not available on them.

This is a real problem, when I'm trying to connect to my
Java-dependent web page.

Unfortunately there is no alternative widely supported applet
programming language available to use instead.  Javascript/ECMAscript
is good for things it's good at, but there are plenty of things it
doesn't do.
