Bubbles - yet another gratuitous Java Applet

Java BubbleGum

This applet is the result of fiddling around with Visual J++. It might perhaps make a semi-decent timewaster while waiting for some large download. It runs like a demon in IE3, but limps along in Netscape4.Interestingly enough, while I came up with the idea independantly (I thought to do this using java's threads), the idea is so brilliantly unoriginal that not only does Sun have a bubbles applet (much less nice, of course) on their own site, but a "bubbles" applet is used in an example in the recent HTML specification.By the way, the controls are javascript, not java, and demonstrate the rather nifty way that javascript can interface with an applet in netscape/IE.
