While this is already old news, the following is something that I just read in today's Langalist. It includes just a small list of things that require Java in which to run correctly. I find the Secunia Online Inspector a most strange thing to be still running using Java.
GoToMyPC works more easily with Java, though it's not required
The Wall Street Journal website, wsj.com, uses Java for dynamic charts
Secunia's Online Software Inspector
ThinkFree Office Online
FreeMind mind-mapping software
France's online voting system
LuxSci webmail Java used only for some advanced features
time.gov the official U.S. time site (Java can be disabled)
Of those applications, I'm most concerned that Secunia's Online Software Inspector requires Java for its scanning processes. I recommend switching to Secunia Personal Software Inspector (site ) to scan your PC for needed updates.--
Age is a very high price to pay for my maturity. If I can't stay young, I can at least stay immature!
