Whenever I see Java firing up on my browser, I cringe. (Flash too.)
There are darn few things either of these do that a good modern
cross-platform library, like jQueryUI, can't do instead.
Except for video playback, which HTML5 fixes as well. And yes, until
then, we're stuck with Flash.
I repeat... Java had its day. Time to move on.
