Chapter 7. Internet Communications > Third-Party Utilities

Third-Party Utilities

Apple has included two other third-party applications to make your Internet browsing a bit more enjoyable. First, Java Web Start (Path: /Applications/Utilities/Java Web Start) is a Java application written by Sun Microsystems to provide a quick and easy way to launch and store other online Java applications. One of the biggest problems with Java applications is the lack of a standard installation and execution procedure. With Java Web Start, users can click on a Java Web Start enabled app within a Web page and transparently download, install, and execute it. For more information and demo software, visit Sun's page at http://java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/.

In addition, Adobe Acrobat Reader (Path: /Applications/Adobe Acrobat Reader) is included for those who need functionality beyond what Apple's Preview application can provide. The Reader software can search PDF documents, display PDFs within a Web browser, and, arguably, does a better job of rendering some PDFs that Apple's offering. For more information on Acrobat Reader, check out http://www.adobe.com/.
