Google Chromebook Website incompatibilities, is this true?

Is it true that there are many websites that do not load properly on a Google Chromebook? Or are there some, and this is just another rumor in the propaganda machine?

Do you use the Chrome browser? It should be an identical browsing experience. If a web site doesn't load on Chrome, it won't load on a Chromebook.

Anything that uses Java - things like minecraft, screenr, and gotomeeting are all screwed on a chromebook.

I have just been thinking about this lately. Some websites require Java to load properly especially game sites and I also use a Java application for sending text messages. It's a shame!

I must go light on the Java enabled sites, I haven't had any issues yet.

I wouldn't say anything that uses Java is screwed. I use a variety of sites that use Java with no problem.

JavaScript is not the same thing as Java.

JavaScript is used in many websites for dynamic behaviour, and it works just fine on a Chromebook. Java applets do not work in Chromebooks without taking 'heroic' measures. See here: https://groups.google.com/group/chro...nk=gst&q&pli=1

You should find that the sites I listed above don't work - please post your findings

I didn't realize there was a difference, when I think about it like that the sites I use do not really use Java applets, so that is good news for me. Although some Chromebook lovers might be pretty sad about this.
