I assume you mean JavaScript? If so, NetSurf isn't going to get JavaScript
support any time soon.

It is a lot of work, lots of things need to be done first, and the
developers don't have endless spare time on their hands. If the addition
of JavaScript was just a quick fix that took only a few weeks we would
have done it by now.

Sorry, but that is the stark reality of the situation. JavaScript support
will happen eventually. Java support is not on the agenda at all.

Best regards,
