Opera beta 37 and Java

  • Hi,

    Is there something I should do to activate Java for Opera? I have installed the latest Java version, but when I go on the Java webpage and try to detect my java version, it says it is unable to detect my java version.

    And I need java for some websites 🙂

    Thanks

  • It has already been discussed here

  • Maybe, but I don't speak the language in your link 😉

  • Use the extension for the translation of web pages.

    Sama Oracle announced the discontinuation of the Java browser plug-in your own Java 9 comes with these plug-ins , watch the news here "Moving to a Plugin-Free Web"

  • Use the extension for the translation of web pages.

    There is no meaning in point to people a discussion in a language different of the one being used in the forum in which the question was made.

  • Java and all other npapi plugins are no longer support by Chromium based browsers. Also, as said, Oracle is dropping Java plugin by the end of the year.

  • I'm not arguing, I'm just trying to give the information that the Java falls.

  • So, this means all java based websites will be unreachable by Opera?
    Don't you think there is a risk Opera will loose a lot of its userbase?
    There're still a lot of websites with Java...

    And where they'll move to?

    Java doesn't work in Chrome already (and include all Chromium-based browsers). Microsoft Edge, same. Firefox will drop NPAPI too.

    Websites will have to be updated to stop using Java (browsers are warning them of NPAPI's discontinuation for almost 3 years or more). Legacy Java web apps will have to be accessed with Internet Explorer or outdated browser versions, and user will use other browser of choice to browse the rest of the web.

    Nope, but their java applet will no longer work in Opera, Chrome, Vivaldi and all Chromium based browsers with current versions of Chromium.

    Also, Java plugin is being discontinued By Oracle. It means that at a certain point until the end of this year, Java will probably stop working on all browsers.

    IMHO, sooner or later plugins will be part of the past.
