    "Works fine"

    November 30, 2011  |   By acerhater96

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7

    Pros

    Runs all apps I have tried, not asking you to update Java every week!

    Cons

    Google Chrome thinks its out of date. Still some bugs that need worked out.

    Summary

    Does what its supposed to, some bugs and still beta. Don't think you should download Java if you don't need it as it is a virus magnet.

    Summary

    Save the hassles and go with the best browsers out there loads 200 X faster then firefox or googles and nicer also Maxthon3 out performs the top 5 browsers by far LOVE IT
    I just like the fact it loads instantly and works on all my games problem free firefox and googles both quit on me last night firefox to to buggy and googles took forever for pages to load or white pages same with Opera and Safari if Opera never had white pages on my game I probably woulda went with them but I think Maxthon3 is better then all 4 to tell you the truth

    October 13, 2011  |   By TonyBeGoode

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7

    Pros

    It's pretty much invisible, and has run everything thrown at it.

    Cons

    None that I've encountered - no news is good news.

    Summary

    As might be expected from one of the most highly-respected software pioneers,Sun Microsystems continues to refine the Java environment. A fine program.

    "I'd give it half a star if I could"

    September 14, 2011  |   By phatuesday

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7

    Pros

    None that I can evaluate

    Cons

    Doesn't install

    Summary

    Doesn't matter if the download manager tries running online from the website or in stand-alone on the desktop - it doesn't run. Continually get a message stating my internet connection must be down, try again. Just as an FYI, I'm a senior sysadmin for almost 20 years with a direct fiber-connect to an insanely tricked-out desktop machine. V.6 is just fine, thought I'd give V.7 a go for yuks - oh well.

    "cnet wont provide you java offline installer"

    September 13, 2011  |   By chenur

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7

    Pros

    Java Runtime Environment 7.0 offline standalone installer can be found at domain s0ftpedia-d0t-c0m who offering for both 64bit and 32bit but cnet only offering java7 for 32bit only and java7 for 64bit cant be found here around.

    Cons

    internet connection is required if you were running java installer downloaded from cnet.

    Summary

    java from cnet contains adware asking your permission whether or not to install cnet toolbar. this is online installer i warn you just in case if you are looking for offline installer. offline installer do not require internet connection because they are standalone installer!
