HTML <applet> Tag


Not Supported in HTML5.

The <applet> tag was used in HTML 4 to define an embedded applet (Plug-in).


Plug-ins

Plug-ins are a computer programs that extend the standard functionality of the browser.

Plug-ins have been used for many different purposes:

  • Run Java applets
  • Run ActiveX controls
  • Display Flash movies
  • Display maps
  • Scan for viruses
  • Verify a bank id

Most browsers no longer support Java Applets and Plug-ins.

ActiveX controls are no longer supported in any browsers.

The support for Shockwave Flash has also been turned off in modern browsers.
