An anonymous reader writes: I'm a physics professor who relies on Java applets in many of my courses. They can do heavy-duty number crunching, and until recently they would run on almost any platform, so it was feasible to write my own simulations and expect every student to be able to run them without hassle. Now that students are migrating to tablets and many computers/browsers are no longer configured to run Java, is there a decent alternative?
