I guess, you mean to disable it. But it still takes some resources. And there is NO use of Java for me (and most of computer users) then why to keep it on the system?
I mean click to run, and for all plugin, not just Java. FOr example I need flash BBC Radio iPlayer and Youtube, so I use plugins or browser settings which show a placeholder and only load the plugin when I click on the placeholder.
If something is only installed, and not run, it does not use resources other than disk space, and not usually much of that.
