Java-Based In-Browser Emulator

It has everything from Sega Master System to Nintendo 64, in browser. But most games require the Vizzed browser plugin that's available on the site.

that's the normal way to do it, but I guess having everything on a remote server is nice for some people who don't want to have to download anything or who just want to try out a game with less hassle than having to download it. I personally prefer having everything on my personal machine, but I can understand why someone would want that.

I used to use one of the Java-based NES emulators in high school. I had an English class in this remodeled room with PCs inside the desks that you could pop up. Well, the kicker was that they ran Linux at the time, and a heavily locked down version at that-- to the point that the KDE desktop didn't even have a K menu, and you could only run icons on the desktop (I somehow managed to get down to terminal level at one point, but still couldn't run anything-- they definitely did their homework). Anyway, the teacher for this class went on maternity leave and the substitute they found didn't really do anything with us all year, so I spent a lot of time messing with the computer at my desk to see if I could get some games running. My final solution was to make a web page on my flash drive that would call up the Java emulator. And it worked! I passed around a version with a selection page for around 50 games to everyone in the class, and we had a great year.

[two different -ish things]
Anywhoo, for a while I wished that JAVA based emulators would become more plentiful - since I'd only need the JRE, and thus could run it on Windows, OS X, or any version of Linux w/ the JRE, which would mean a singular version of a particular emulator that would be developed consistently among platforms [coughunlikesaymameOSXcough] and a lot of emulators on other platforms, Mac OSX especially, are rather lacking it seems
