Re: need a browser.
opera works with java. I've never had a problem with Java and opera before, I also went to gsn.com and it worked perfectly fine. Try downloading the java plugin while in opera, you have to re download it for opera, firefox etc. if i'm correct. Try that and it should work. If that doesn't work try firefox but I'd try to stick with opera since it's a bit more secure than firefox.
