Others can fill in some of the details, but basically you can run Java applets through most browsers without the need for special plugins etc. But I *think* that MS browsers only have support for Java 1.1, and I hope I'm not misleading you. Java 2 is the same as Java 1.2. The latest public release is Java 1.5. So you might need to be careful that you don't code for a version that doesn't run in people's browsers, unless you're happy to direct them to somewhere where they can download them from.

To start developing, you need the Java Development Kit, from java.sun.com somewhere.
