Shimmering water effect

I want to add a shimmering water effect to an image.

Can someone tell me which freebie Javascript I should use -
and the one that will cause less of a problem for clients
viewing it through their web browser.

Thanks.

You would be more likely to do this with a filter. I found the following
page by doing a google search for "shimmering water filter." You'll probably
find a lot more pages if you do a similar search.

That requires the use of a java applet, which further
requires that a visitors machine has Java Virtual Machine
installed. Newer machines ( XP with IE 6 ) don't have it.

That said, what you're looking for is called "java lake effect."

Here's a link with info.

Don't do this because:

a) It's cheesy
b) was over done in the late 90's
c) is a Java Applet, which, while they have their uses, are usually a PITA
for the end user
d) MS in it's infinite 'wisdom' decided not to support Java by default on
XP.

Darrel,

Your assertion on item D is incorrect. This was not a decision made by
Microsoft. A little research will point to the real reason why Java
essentially shot itself in the foot.

not javascript - but a java applet (two different things) - is it the
water-ripple (reflection on a lake) type one you're thinking of?

Search "java applets" in Google
