Are java applets still a frequent choice for browser games? Or would you say that something like flash has mostly taken over this aspect?
I ask because I am considering looking into creating a 2D browser game and I'm not sure if Java is a good choice. Ideally, I would like to make something like Tetris or Space Invaders.
And if you do think it is a good choice, could you recommend any books that deal with this subject? I've looked on amazon, but many books are at least 5 years old by this point.
