Pure Java Full Screen Demo

This demo (quite obviously) requires Java to be enabled.

Well, this is pure evil.

The wettest dream of any phisher or web advertiser.

A full screen window which can't be stopped by popup blockers and can not be closed by the user (without killing the browser).

It should work in any Java-enabled browser.

It's been tested on IE, Firefox, Opera and Safari.

To prevent malicious sites from doing this, you need disable Java globally or (smarter) use NoScript to selectively enable it on trusted sites only.
