The usual reminder: Java is the single most DaNGeRouS software Mac users can run on the Internet.

If you're a user on the Internet: Don't run Java in your browsers unless you really really have to. Even then, turn it off when you're done or it may leave a nasty stain.

If you're a developer: Please give the world a break and use some other technology for programming on the web. Java really is the worst POS rubbish coding language on the Internet, no exceptions. Thank you for caring.

Oh and thank YOU Oracle for ruining Java. I hate you Oracle!

Odd. I ran 'java -v' in the Terminal and was prompted to install Oracle's Runtime :P

Close to every language runs on the JVM (Java Virtual Machine), so you do seem misguided on what Java really is. Hint, it's a platform not a language.
Also, Java on the server isn't more insecure than other languages (PHP especially).

I have no idea why you would run Java in the browser these days. (Java ≠ Javascript), so I'm with you there.

"Java is a programming language and computing platform..."

Maybe you should tell Oracle what's up because it seems their explanation disagrees with yours.

Of course it's also a language, but not just a language. As I said, it's a platform, which is what Oracle says. It certainly doesn't support your initial sentiment.
On this Java computing platform runs a large number of all modern web languages in use. That was the point, not splitting hairs.

On the upside, you are now guided in what Java is.

Of course my hint should have read:
"Java is a platform just as much as it's a language.", but I think most people that read the first version understood it that way.

Funny when you get to Oracle they say the download is 166 Megs and as noted it installs straight over 1.7 and heals several critical patches. If you open Safari after the install it will tell you tell you the version you installed admittedly this requires a couple of clicks to connect to the Oracle site but then you are good to go. Runs pretty quick.

Funny when I ran the Java Update Check it did not find 1.8, had to manually download and install it.

What a strange update policy. Very confusing and user unfriendly. Also no word on how to update if Java 1.7 is installed and wanting to update to 1.8. Fact is, just install it over the existing Java and you're good. Communicating this to the user would be even better. Oracle is a strange company.

I installed, confirmed latest version was successfully installed in my web browser, and rebooted. Going into Apple menu / System Preferences / Java, I select Update in the Java Control Panel, press the Check for Updates button, and get this message:

"Unable to check for Java updates"
"Please check your internet connection and try again."

I bet other folks will experience the same behavior/result. Pretty sad this is released without strict quality control.

Get your sh!t together, Oracle!

Everything on my Mac says I've updated to 1.8 except MacUpdate Desktop.

Found the problem with MacUpdate Desktop. A residual plugin for Java 1.7 was in my /Library/Internet plugins/ directory.
