Icedtea in Chrome won't load java applets such as minecraft and runescape. It shows a gray screen instead. I've tried and failed to install the java plugin for chrome and it's left me wondering why icedtea wont's work!?

I used to have this bug, and what I did was activate the plugin. Go to chrome://plugins whilst using chrome and then activate the appropriate plugin(s) for java.

Thanks, mjchopperboy
