Oracle brings wonderful news to anyone with a PC: The hated Java plug-in, which has made computers insecure since 1995, is finally being depreciated.
And nobody is going to miss it!
However, it will not happen immediately.
In the upcoming updates of Java Developer Kit, developers will be advised not to use the functionality.
Once everyone has had a chance to say goodbye, it's over and out. History.
The news is well received on the internet.
"Java is a serious threat to data security, and there is no logical reason for the continued support."
"Rest in hell, Java plug-in. We're not going to miss you," writes the techno blog Gizmodo.
