Is it possible to get Java working inside a web browser?

I have Chrome and Arctic Fox installed.

The issue I have is that certain web pages wont load and/or work correctly... Mainly docker web GUIs that need Java.

Please, I don't want to hear...

  1. Security
  2. Outdated hardware
  3. Linux

EDIT: What I have already tried

  1. Downloading latest Java from the Java website: The installer cant be launched
  2. Going inside the .app container and running /resources/JavaAppletPlugin.pkg: Installation fails

OS X 10.7.5 Is fully up to date

    What research have you done so far? java.com/en/download/faq/java_mac.xml first hit on Google for "java os x" – Tetsujin Aug 27 '20 at 17:15

    Obviously I tried downloading the latest java from the java website. The installer cant be launched even though it says it supports 10.7.5. Its not as simple as just installing java... thats why I am here. – Chris Aug 27 '20 at 18:43

    Then you should include this & any other relevant information in your question… it saves other people wasting their time covering ground you've already covered. We cannot see over your shoulder. You have to tell us what you've done & what didn't work, what error messages you got, etc. – Tetsujin Aug 27 '20 at 18:45
  • Right ye, sorry. I will edit the question – Chris Aug 27 '20 at 18:47
  • I know you don't want to hear "outdated hardware," so you have an outdated operating system. Since you can't upgrade any further, then inherently, your hardware is outdated. According to the Java System Requirements for v7 and v8 you need to be running macOS 10.8.3 or newer. With your current system you are limited to a maximum of Java 6 – Allan Aug 27 '20 at 19:53
