If you can't see the Applet, your browser doesn't support Java.

The applet you can see running above is generating the Mandelbrot set whilst you are reading this text. The applet weighs in at just 3.73 kilobytes and is an excellent example of how a web-page can be transformed into a dynamic and interesting place. Click within the fractal to zoom in and hold down shift and click to reset the original scaling. A benchmark time is given in the status bar of your browser once the fractal has finshed being drawn. Typical times for a fast 486 are of the order of 25 seconds, a Pentium 120 should complete this in less than half this time.

A more light hearted example of our Java work can be seen here.
