Solved What are the PROS and CONS of installing and using JAVA?

Acer / Aspire 5738-6969

Specs: Windows 7, SP1, 4 GB
Some browsers allow users to install and use JAVA. Other(s) don't -- for whatever reason(s). I looked thoroughly in the listing of programs that are installed on my Aspire 5738. I don't have JAVA installed on this laptop.

I WANT TO KNOW THE PROS & CONS OF USING JAVA, before going for it.

Pls. Feel free to offer your experience(s) with using JAVA.

Java is a known security risk so should only be installed if needed. Some websites need it, most do not. If it is needed you would most likely know this, having received related errors. If it is needed for an important website you really don't have a choice. If you don't need it you have nothing to gain by installing it.

I don't have it installed on any of my computers and have not found a need.

✔ Best Answer
In the unlikely event that you need it for some specific purpose or program you can disable it in browsers (via Control Panel > Java) then invoke it when essential. The vulnerabilities are mainly when using Java in a browser.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
