Previous versions of this applet required Java 1.1. I have modified it to use my own, proprietary server-side proxy instead of using RMI calls. Now any Java enabled browser should be able to use it.
Source code is provided here in a JAR file. If you want to run this as an application on your own machine, simply download the JAR file to your machine. It includes all the classes you need. Unpack it and type "java main" to run. You will need Sun's JRE installed first! You will also need the JRE to extract the JAR file for the source code.
