Today me and probably the 3 billions of people trying using java applet on chrome has found that after the java upgrade, chrome was unable to run java applet anymore, this not because of java, but because of google that decided to drop/stop the support for NPAPI, that is a cross-platform architecture standard used by many browser to enable plugins/applet such as Silverlight, Java and Facebook Video. You can find more directly from java website “How do I use Java with the Google Chrome browser?” But there’s also a good news, you can re-enable it, by doing these steps:
- In your URL bar, enter:
- Click the enable link for the Enable NPAPI configuration option.
- Click the relaunch button that now appears at the bottom of the configuration page.
…and here we go!! God bless the configurations!
This configuration is temporary and will work just until Chrome version 45 that will be released later in 2015. After the release of Chrome version 45, you’ll need to use an alternate web browser to load content that requires a NPAPI plugin.
