Oracle prioritizes Java security

quote:
The release of Java 8, originally due in September this year, has been pushed back. The new version's headline feature—Project Lambda, which brings anonymous functions to Java—isn't yet finished.

The reason for this delay is, in part, security. Over the past eight months, a large number of critical security flaws have been found and patched.

This has damaged Java's reputation, with Apple, for example, reacting by removing the Java plugin from from its Safari browser.

Yeahhhhh right!!!!! Do u guys actually believe this?
Java 8 will have issues just like 6 and 7 and so on so on and so on....
Just do not trust Oracle since their business is mostly outsourced....Sorry to be so harsh, but thats the truth.

Best way to deal with JAVA is like I've done...don't use it.
I uninstalled it 2 months ago and haven't been to a site yet that has asked to run it. Gonna keep it that way if possible!

I still use Java and never had any issues it's just some people get to paranoid. "Silly boy ya' self-destroyer. paranoia, they destroy ya' ". The Kinks.

Sorry, but wasn't that a goal with Java 1.0? And if so, what happened to it?

:facepalm moment:

I have disabled Java, some time ago, but I have had some problems in doing so...happily...in that I still won't turn it back on. I have a critical speed problem which is still not fixed. Do you have any idea how many testing sites there are for speed that run on Java!?!?!?
