JApplet stop() not called as per tutorial
My JApplet's stop() method is not called from IE, Chrome or Safari when I switch tabs, but is called along with the destroy() method when I close the tab that includes the applet.
Could you please let me know why this behavior occurs? In the tutorials, it is mentioned that stop() will be called to release resources when the user is not viewing the applet (hence when he/she switches tabs) and I need it for the applet.
Any links or workarounds are very welcome. Thank you.

Re: JApplet stop() not called as per tutorial
It is up to the browser to call the applet methods. I don't know if you can change the browser's behavior.
Maybe some browers have settings for that but I have never seen it.
