Q:  How does the iPIX Java Viewer 3.3 Lite display iPIX immersive images?

A:  The iPIX Java Viewer 3.3 Lite is downloaded to your computer whenever you request an iPIX immersive image from a Web page that contains the applet. Once downloaded, iPIX Java Viewer 3.3 Lite receives and displays the iPIX immersive image that you have requested. When the image displays, it automatically rotates or "spins" within the viewer. You can always stop this automated movement and navigate the image manually using the methods described earlier.

Q:  Which browsers do you recommend for Windows users?

A:  If you are using Windows 95, 98, or NT, you must use either Internet Explorer version 4.01 SP2 to 5.x or Netscape version 4.04 to 6.0. If your browser is not Java-enabled, you won't see the iPIX immersive image. You can download the latest version of Netscape from www.netscape.com, or Internet Explorer from www.microsoft.com.

Q:  What browser and operating system do I need to view iPIX immersive images on my Macintosh computer?

A:  iPIX recommends using Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 SP2 to 5.0 on a Macintosh running OS 8.x to 9.x with Apple Macintosh Runtime for Java (MRJ) version 2.0 or later. Updating the Apple MRJ can dramatically improve your browser's performance. You can download the latest Apple MRJ from Apple's Web site, www.apple.com. The Preferred Memory Size for Internet Explorer should be raised to 15-20 Mbytes.

Q:  Are there any Web browsers and operating system that will not display iPIX immersive images on my Macintosh computer?

  Internet Explorer versions prior to 3.0 will not display iPIX immersive images on any Macs with systems prior to OS 8.1 or Apple Macintosh Runtime for Java (MRJ) prior to version 2.0.
