Yes, Yes, a thousand times yes! Lets throw Flash and Java in the same landfill and bury them for all time. Along with them should go the entire concept of the web app. They and the platforms they run on are universally shit.

Doesn't html 5 depend on java or is it javascript... If we get rid of flash and java most internet sites will become pointless.

Uh, no.  Approximately 99.999999% of the web sites in the world use no client-side Java whatsoever.

Maybe I'm wrong, but don't a number of site still use Java?  It's nice to say use another browser for a single site, but what about the others?  I'm pretty certain more than one uses it, and people would prefer to keep using their good browser for them.

This honestly comes off as someone saying something isn't needed when in reality it is.  It's needed because it is the popular choice, and that is what people are using.  There really isn't much of a popular alternative.  The same could be said about Adobe Flash.  Responsible for a lot of viruses, but too many sites rely on it to simply abandon it.

Edit:
I may be confusing Java with Javascript.  I'm not an expert, so feel free to argue against me.

I agree with you.

IBM and a number of benchmark websites use Java, not to mention the almighty MineCraft.

Plus, there are 1,000s of Java enabled devices and their remote control apps.

I don't see Java going away anytime soon.

Somehow I don't think the research took into account all those people playing minecraft.
