Java Runtime Environment 7 Update 51

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  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.

I use Java to play Runescape. To be honest, having Java installed is never an issue for me. Chrome has a function in the browser which prevents applets running unless you add them to an exception list. This has worked fine for me. Firefox also has that NoScript plugin. Not sure about IE. If people browse responsibly, Java is perfectly fine to have.

Buttus said,
i used to play, and if you use their own program for it, you don't need java installed

just FYI

Thanks, I'll try that out.

Ranks right up there with Adobe Reader and flash player as something you know you don't want ot need, but yet sometimes have to have!

Lucky for me, I can't think of the last time I needed this total POS! Not even my wife's ignorant credit union site requires this, as it does Adobe Reader.

At least having Adobe Reader installed does not necessarily expose your computer to all sorts of drive-by security hacks on the Web.

(BTW, Firefox's latest built-in pdf reader ain't too shabby.)
