	Not a plugin but whatever jdk-* supports java in its
	many uses.  javascript and whatever else.  On my laptop
	I have netscape7 which appears to come with everything
	pre-built and -installed.  Given my druthers, I rather
	use mozilla.

	Have you used links -g?  I finally figured out howto get both
	realplay and xmms|zink to work with this browser.  Happened to
	discover that Real does play mp3's.  Works with Shoutcast.

	Next step is to see if I can get mplayer going.
