Question: What is Java? And what does it have to do with surfing the internet?

Answer: Aside from being a delicious hot beverage that keeps your telephone technical support personnel bright eyed and bushy tailed, java also can refer to a web programming language that was originally produced by Sun Microsystems in the early 1990s during the infancy of the internet. It is usually written into the coding of web pages to simplify and streamline the display of what would normally be much more complicated and “heavy” graphics on web pages on multiple operating systems. Put simply, java acts as an interpreter between the different operating systems such as Windows, Macintosh, and Linux so that several web pages do not need to be constructed for each unique software to display and understand.
