It seems that only Google infected browsers are complaining about Java. Yes, even Firefox is infected by Google developers, especially since version 4 and the fact that Google is now the main funder of Firefox.
Like Microsoft, Google thought that they could plagiarise Java and got a good rap over the knuckles. Ever since then Google has been paying out on Java.
Java has been the safest language to use for eons by design. It cannot be a threat and it has always been that way. But if Java can now be a threat to web browsers it will be by the design of those web browsers that are trying push boundaries and if it's Google doing the push it will be privacy at risk.
If you are a Java developer or only a Java user you will be suffering from these new limitations. For example, if you are a developer you now need to maintain a currently code-signed jar file for your clients to update their web resources. If you are a Java user you may be in big trouble because the Java app that you purchased over a year ago may not have been code-signed or the code-signing has expired, so kiss your investment good-bye.
That right, not only must your Java app be code-signed but it must be code-signed by a current certificate. Only idiots from hell would not realise that any app that is code-signed is code-signed for life. The app developer has been certified and authenticated and that app has been sealed with approval. It cannot be altered in any way without breaking the code signing, not now or in 10 years!
Need a second opinion? Notice how IE is not complaining about Java. The only browsers complaining about Java are the ones under the influence of Google.
