Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.18

Java software allows you to run applications called "applets" that are written in the Java programming language. These applets allow you to have a much richer experience online than simply interacting with static HTML pages.

Java Plug-in technology, included as part of the Java 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (JRE), establishes a connection between popular browsers and the Java platform. Java allows applications to be downloaded over a network and run within a guarded sandbox. Security restrictions are easily imposed on the sandbox.

Many cross platform applications also require Java to operate properly. This update includes several performance improvements.

2 problems with ms java: 1: it only works with Cough Cough Hachoo IE and 2: it's no longer supported and is very insecure though you can find it still just not so easy.

Yep, it is insecure, although MSJVM is still lighter compared to Sun's Java.

Yes and Windows 95 is lighter compared to Windows 7, do you still use 95 also?

Plus it was never Microsoft's, as much as they tried to steal it.

sun java is getting better but not there yet, java likes to gobble up lots of memory at times which is why i don't really like java based apps that use it.

Why?

It was less bloaty. A java applet would load almost instantly with Microsoft JVM, with Java's, it takes a few seconds, then an icon pops up in your task tray ...etc.
