Nagging me from all quarters is to remove Java, or at the very least disable that functionality. So I decided to disable it for the time being. I have to say that so far it doesn't seem to have affected my use of the Internet in any way so presumably my security level has risen with no known downside.
However the speed test on this site advises me to download Java. Well the flash version seems to work OK, so why suggest to those that don't have Java loaded, or not enabled, to download software that has security implications for your PC?
Since the flash versions neither gives a hyperlink to your results or the ability to display a graphic of such in your footer, I reckon that those that do are advertising the fact that they have an insecure PC.
If I have got the wrong end of the stick, please say so and I will go and hide in a corner.
