An applet is a programme that runs inside another application such as
as web browser. The programme starts when the
page it is contained within is downloaded.
Applets are often used to create features including news bars (tickers)
or more sophisticated interfaces than those supported by the HTML standard.
Java is an example of a coding language in which applets can be created.
