WebEQ Browser Controls Installation
is No Longer Recommended
Starting with version 3.6 of the WebEQ Browser Controls, installation is no
longer recommended. Most modern Web browsers automatically cache Java
applet files. Caching eliminates download times as does installing on the
local disk, but caching is more secure, leads to fewer version conflicts, and is
less error prone.
Therefore, we recommend that you DO NOT install the WebEQ Browser Controls
unless you were sent to this page by a web site using WebEQ. Some older
sites and browsers may still require local installation to function properly,
and to accommodate these content providers, Design Science will continue to make
the version 3.5 Browser Control installers available. However, you may
wish to contact these content providers and suggest they update to version 3.6
of the controls.
Users of older web browsers that do not support caching, particularly
Netscape 4.x, may also wish to install the browser controls locally.
