New Java Plugin in Mozilla 3.0 and 90.000 lines of code were removed...

During yesterdays Java Kernel session, someone asked me why the new Java Plugin isn't available for Firefox 2, only 3+. The answer was surprising: the plugin was completely rewritten - together with mozilla guys.
...this allowed the removal of about 90.000 LoC. So Firefox 3.0 became leaner and the Java integration more seamless and robust.

I'm running the new plugin on both my Linux boxes. There are a couple of wrinkles, but over all very nice!
