[b]** Edit:[/b] The problem was my Java plugin for Forefox was outdated. After updating, the applet works fine.

All of that works just fine for me in Chrome.

I tried running it as an applet via Eclipse and via my Chrome browser using the jar file and also using just the .class file. It all worked fine for me.

P.S. What is that semicolon on line 7 for?

I found the issue, as stated in the original post .... as far as the semi colon is concerned, that is just an artifact leftover from code changes.
