To Get What I Wanted I Had to Give Up What I Had

Interested in what I did? It took a few hours to do actually, old old computer otherwise it wouldn't have taken but a few minutes. Anyway, I play a game online, a strategy game. Java had an update this morning. It said it doesn't work with Chrome. So okay, no problem. Yeah right, no problem. First I went to my game. Half a board. In other words I couldn't play it, not in Google, not in Internet Explorer. I needed to download a flash player. Guess what? The flash player needed to have ALL Chrome windows closed. I had no idea how to do that. I thought it meant I needed to close the Google tab - just X out. Not a chance did that work. It still said I needed to close all Chrome windows. Okay, I went to my control panel and tried to uninstall Google - didn't work. Then I went to settings and disconnected Google there. It did not disconnect Chrome. I went back to the control panel and was able to uninstall Chrome - at last. Now unfortunately I don't have Google except through Internet Explorer, so I don't have a Google home page as I did before. So now everything I do is still on Google through IE. I haven't been back to the game yet to see if all my efforts were worth it. I will though. I have my daily award to pick up soon. Has anybody else had trouble with Chrome? Thanks for reading.

A lot of people will start running into issues with Java applications and applets now that Chrome is dropping the support for Java applets. When it happens depends on a lot of factors. Java applets CAN still be made to be compatible, however it is now the responsibility of the web administratiors to make sure to manage Java through the DRS in the control pannal. The makers of the game, have to make it compatible for chrome, and if they can't, you use IE, or MAYBE Fire Fox.

@just4him I am getting a new computer, too. You almost have to have the latest technology to make it all work. I wonder if Java is falling because the internet is now cross platform. Java and mobile, and tablets have has problems from go. Now applications are different, and even PC users have full access to them. What will java do to make sure they don't become a forgotten technology?

I played at Pogo every day. I can now say I "usedto" play at pogo. Now the side goes down most of the time in the middle of a game. It is not fun anymore. It says there´s a failure at the flashplayer, but when I go there it tells me that it is updated and working well. I suppose you will have to put up with me for more hours now
