Re: [POLL] Do you use Java; disable it; or uninstall it ?

I disabled Java months ago and have not found a site that required I need it since.

Try some of the TOOLS on dslreports.com. They need Java. Like the Tweak test.

If you use Firefox or IE9, merely enable JAVA for an accurate speed test then disable it again. No Script gives the same control in Firefox but I have knocked JAVA out of constant contact with the browsers for now.

I left Java on, but with NoScript in Firefox I should be okay. Hopefully Oracle patches this quick.

That's because they are out of date. Ancient by todays standards.

The speed tests that need java on dslr are not out of date. Flash tests are utter crap when it comes to accurately testing your speed. As for Tweak test you forget that there are still a lot of XP users out there for whom that test is very useful.
