Custom Menus

If you app need a custom context menu shown on a web page instead of a standard shown by the browser, you can easily set it.

Cookie Management

JExplorer supports both persistent and session cookies. You are free to use them in a variety of ways: create, modify or delete, set and get their name, value, domain and other information. Learn more.

Capturing Web Pages

With JExplorer you can make a screenshot of a web page, either its visible part or the entire content. See example.

Browser Components

JExplorer provides a visual browser object for embedding in a Swing/AWT UI. This object integrates native MS IE web browser component that renders web pages. So, web pages are rendered exactly as in MS Internet Explorer.

Access to the DOM

You can work with DOM of web pages in many ways: manage elements in a document, modify element attributes, apply element styles, fire an event on some element, manipulate data in the HTML form elements, etc.


JExplorer allows modifying default user-agent string that will be sent to a web server.

Proxy Settings Configuration

JExplorer allows you to configure global proxy settings for ftp, http, https, gopher, socks as well as those available for a current process without affecting global proxy configuration. See example.

Execute JavaScript Code

The library allows executing JavaScript code, intercepting JavaScript errors, and handling JavaScript dialogs such as Alert and Confirmation.

Support for Events

With event listeners you can: register and listen to DOM events, handle JavaScript errors and various states of the browser, listen for a start and completion of navigation, track page downloading progress and more.

JavaScript Java Bridge

JExplorer provides API that you can use to register Java callback function in JavaScript environment on the loaded web page to invoke Java code from JavaScript.

Access to Advanced Settings

With Browser class, you’ll be able to access Internet Explorer advanced settings. You can disable ActiveX controls, block navigation to any page with a malformed URL, enable or disable a pop-up blocker, and more.
