When a newer copy of Java comes up, what I do is go to the java web site and click around a little until I see both the 32bit and 64bit runtime environments (usually jre*). I know I could do with only the 32bit version which is the one Firefox uses, but I'm just picky.

When I replaced Firefox with Waterfox, I didn't install Java at all. Firefox's configuration kept saying it was unsafe and disabled it by default. With all the web sites I've visited in the past few months, I've yet to encounter one that insists on Java to run something. I'm thinking Oracle's test site is the only one around.

Bottom line: don't even bother with Java

Last time I had Java on my system, Firefox disables it by default deeming it unsafe. It's been quite a while since I've run into a site that uses Java. The most recent is http://broadband.mpi-sws.org/transparency/bttest.php (http://broadband.mpi-sws.org/transparency/bttest.php) -- it's a good site, it tells you if your ISP is throttling or interfering with torrents. As I see it, for just one site installing Java is just not worth it.

To humbert: I tested this version and Firefox also disabled it (v28.0). If you have time perhaps you can find which registry key is changed or what to do to enable it automatically. I can insert that in my installer.
Java is not mandatory as you say except when you want to display a graphic or something which has contents requiring java.
For example the following graphic needed java to be displayed:
(https://image.ibb.co/fWfn0q/35773455ey.jpg)
I didnt choose this graphic randomly and I'm going to explain it to you.
This is the exchange of the Eur/Yen.
in August 2012 for 1Euro you had 95 Yen.
Now for 1Euro you have 141 Yen.
So there has been a big devaluation of the yen (losing in 1 year about 40% of its value) and it is due to the japan government printing a lot of money, because Japan is an ageing, ruined, terribly indebted country, and it needs to import a lot of commodities, like oil to produce electricity, since most nuclear plants have been shut down after the accident of Fukushima. And it's interesting to see that the US are following the same way by printing tons of dollars, not in the same proportion  that Japan though, but the dollar is being devalued anyway, impoverishing the vast majority of the population which is not very rich and which can't buy real assets like gold, lands, or even stocks...to be protected against the loss of value of the money.
I hope You have understood until now...
When There Is a devaluation, There Is an increase in the price of every asset, like food, commodities (for example the japanese are paying their oil 70% more in yen, as it Is priced in $). Its also true for Financial stocks. And if we look at the Nikkei, it Just soared from 8500 before the printing of money to 14000 now. If we "reprocess" the 14000 in a not devalued yen, we have to remove 40% to the index and then we are Just above 8500. So a well avised investor who has bought japanese shares, if these ones have followed, in average the Nikkei, didnt lose money, he's even more rich, in devalued yen. But for the huge majority of people who dont invest in anything There Is a big loss, their purchasing power Is weakened. And its the same thing with the current bubble at wall Street. A few bankers are making money while the population Is impoverished, all That with the assent of central bankers like Ben Bernanke  who dont want to take strong measures to reimburse an enormous debt and prefer to keep the economy afloat a few more weeks or months.

Do you visit enough Java-based web sites that it becomes necessary to install it? I'd love, for example, not to have to install Flash, but unfortunately too many web sites use it, and I don't mean Youtube. They have HTML5 available with which you can skip Flash, but sadly that's the not case with so many others.

To humbert: probably not, but I dont see why I wouldnt install it. Now I use essentially my phone to browse websites, And there is no java, nor flash available for win8, for me no flash is often disabling.
some updates are out but I Will update jre8 when major updates are released.

I use plugins only if I feel I need them. In my case I've only run into 1 Java-using site in the past year or more. Not only that, but Firefox disables Java by default and says it's unsafe. I don't like flash any more than you do, but unlike Java, many sites use it. For example, if 100% of all videos I look at were from Youtube, I'd remove Flash and just use the much safer HTML5.

Another one of your eternal questions. :) It is true that in practice you can do without JRE. Only a very small percentage of web sites actually use Java on the client side. If you use desktop apps written in Java then you need it, of course. There aren't many, relatively speaking. FrostWire springs to mind, I know it's Java based. Minecraft too.

You are the only one here who answers my eternal questions and satisfies my curiosity totally. Thanks :)

I used to use a pre-torrent file sharing app called Limewire that wouldn't work unless Java was installed.

Do you visit many sites that use Java? I haven't run into one in ages, nor do I run any apps that require Java to be installed. This contrasts sharply with flash. As much as I may hate flash, it's everywhere and many sites will not work without it. Only on Youtube do you not need flash, and even then you have to have the "Youtube All HTML5" addon installed.

That links you to pingtest.net. Java is only required for determining packet loss. Ping and jitter don't need it. The only other interesting Java site would probably be http://broadband.mpi-sws.org/transparency/bttest.php (http://broadband.mpi-sws.org/transparency/bttest.php). This tells you if your ISP is throttling torrents. For me installing Java for just these 2 sites is not worth the effort.

I accidentally found a site called http://www.bandwidthplace.com/ (http://www.bandwidthplace.com/). This thing tests ping and speed using HTML5. I just ran a test -- ping and upload speed were on target, but download speed was notoriously off the mark.

If Java is being used as a Firefox plugin, then the 32bit version is enough. Are you running a Java based 64bit app?

Because of this conversation I decided to give a try to Waterfox.
Perhaps I should use Waterfox instead of Firefox, and keep Java 64bit version only...

By the way, sorry for the off-topic but is Waterfox really faster than Firefox?
Is it worth trying?

Absolutely YES! I've been running it for several months and it works like a champ. I have almost 50 Firefox plugins running on Waterfox and they run seamlessly. It's very fast and highly dependable. Fuj explained this is because they write it specifically for Windows, whereas regular Firefox is mostly for Linux and ported to Windows. Details are available at their web site.

For the story:

and 2 machines with Win7x32 (keep Firefox)

Excellent choice! I don't know about Java but on Flash, the same one that's available everywhere works seamlessly with Waterfox. No need to chase down a 64bit version. Incidentally I opened a tab to their web site and found out it has upgraded to 39.

Flash I can understand. Despite the security risk there are trillions of sites out there that still use it. As much we may hate it, Flash is a necesity. Not so with Java. Rarely do I ever run into a Java-based site.

Are there still any important (i.e., no better alternative) PC programs that require Java? Last one I remember was Limewire. I used that many years ago.

You already asked me the same question a few years ago. It seems you don't really like Java. Yes there are still websites using java, on this one you won't be able to display graphics without jre for example: http://www.boursorama.com/bourse/cours/graphiques/historique.phtml?&symbole=GG&applet=1
And sometimes you can stumble upon some apps that still needs it. They are not numerous, I admit it.

It's not a matter of not liking Java. It the fact that not that many sites are using it and very few programs that need it. In fact, what I'm seeing is less and less use of Java as the days go by. I don't like Flash either, but unlike Java, with Flash I have no choice but to install it. Too many sites out there use it for videos and games. Even so, Flash's days are also numbered. For example, pornhub.com (http://pornhub.com) upgraded to HTML5. Check them out. Surely I'm not the only pervert on this site. :)
