The same Java source code, translated to the same Java bytecode, should 
run pretty well anywhere.  (I think there's some kind of micro-java for 
very very timy machines, like cellphones, though.)

The catch is that someone has to have written a JVM for your OS.  But 
usually, someone already has.  And within a browser, it would have 
to be made available as a plugin for whatever browser you have.

Sun went to a lot of trouble to make Java run everywhere compatibly.
