An applet is a small application program developed to work within application software easily. For example java applets or other mini applications which are written in the java high level program language.

Applet means those programs which are already available within the operating system. A typical solution for malicious applets is to make the web browser to monitor applets’ activities.

This will result in a web browser that will enable the manual or automatic stopping of malicious applets. To illustrate this method, AppletGuard was used to observe and control any applet in a browser successfully.

Some browsers, like Google Chrome, no longer support the <applet> tag, and others, like Apple Safari, do not even enable Java by default. Since web developers cannot fully rely on Java support from web browsers, applets are no longer a common way to provide interactive content on the Web.
