Is Swing meant only for Desktop applications? What is the reason that the Swing features are not seen on any internet sites? Is it lack of support in IE that is the reason?

You can run swing applications or applets from a web browers by using the plug-in mechanism. To run a full-featured application you can use Java Web Start (http://www.java.sun.com/products/javawebstart/index.html). Swing applets can also be run in a browser. Please refer to FAQ "How do I run Swing Applets in a Browser" (http://www.jguru.com/jguru/faq/view.jsp?EID=4144)
