No Java = No Chatroom :(

Google Chrome no longer supports Java:

 

 

 

Plugin-based content doesn't work on Chrome

Plugins previously allowed extra features to be added to browsers. Most of these features can now be included by website creators in a more secure way by default as part of HTML5. Chrome support for these plugins ended September 1, 2015.

Why NPAPI plugins don’t work now

In the past, many plugins were developed using an old system called NPAPI. Today fewer sites are using NPAPI plugins and they have often caused security risks on websites.

To make browsing with Chrome safer, faster, and more stable, we stopped allowing NPAPI plugins on September 1, 2015.

Plugins that use NPAPI, including Silverlight, Java, and Unity, won’t work. If you want to use a website that uses an NPAPI plugin, you’ll need to use a different web browser.

 

Any chance dear Punternet (Galahad & Co) of being able to access the chat room on  without having to use Java on another browser??

The company that provides the chat software is working on a non-Java version but it is not ready yet. As soon as it is complete and integrates with the forum I will be changing over. Believe me, I want to see the back of Java as much as anyone!
