Does C# support applets like in Java?

It think it's supposed to eventually. That whole code security thinger is designed around distributing .NET code across the net and being able to run in on client's machine without the client having to worry about whether or not it's a virus. (or something like that.... i think)

So... not yet?

You can host .NET controls in Internet Explorer. I don't think it's supported in any other browser(here's a weekend project for some Firefox fanatic[wink]). Take a look at the source control thingie at Gotdotnet Workspaces for an example of this technology in action.

This looks like a decent introduction to the topic.

Not exactly supported, but there are ways in 2.0

There is a new feature called ClickOnce Deployment. Basically you will put a link to your .Net Application (Actually its deploy file, but that is details...), and then the computer will automatically download and start the application. It won't run in a browser, it will execute exactly like a normal program. It is also added to the local cache, so that future clicks on the link will start up the local copy already downloaded, unless the server says that a new version is available.
