    Remove Java From Your PC

    I removed Java from my Windows computer and now Open Office opens up much faster than before.

    Have you seen any downside with removing Java? I thought it was there because some software needs it.

    I notice that Java is one of the Plugins in my FireFox browser. I have been having memory leak problems with FireFox for some time. Java also has a long history of memory leak problems. Hmmm.

    That would be a problem for me because I am using NetBeans IDE and the more I use it, the more I like it. But I think I will disable the Java plugin for FireFox.

    I forgot about NetBeans IDE, I use it too, but I use Open Office much more often, so I may uninstall/install Java as needed. There is a website that I used to use daily with a Java Applet, I should check that out too.

    Edit: I just tried the website that I mentioned: "You need a Java Plugin
    in order to use our exciting
    streaming applications" Darn!

    A site still using a Java applet? That is way too 1990s for me.

    Back in the 1990s I was on an expedition in Churchill Manitoba in Canada and ran into two guys who were putting together one of the first shopping portals. The problem that they had was not with the concept, which was state-of-the-art and way ahead of its time, but rather with the 20 meg Java applet that users had to download prior to using the portal. The problem was that almost all web users were on dial-up modems at that time. It could take hours to download a 20 meg applet on a dial-up connection.

    LOL - this site (ADVFN.COM) is like that, the site is the most heavily peppered site with Ads that I ever came across, even when you are a paid subscriber! And the Java Applet is a fairly big download. I overcame the Ads with Ad-blocker plugins. But I found this site the best solution for my live price feeds of UK stocks when I was trading I guess their business model was struggling to be profitable, hence all the Ads?
