Is there a viable JAVA alternative?

Posted

Hello I would like to know if there is a viable and usable alternative to JAVA. Every time there is an Oracle update to Java, it seems to attract the Hackers who attack it, followed by another Java 'Fix' which does not work. I appreciate the work FireFox has done to work around this problem, but would like to know if there are alternative programmes out there which could break the Java circle.

Unfortunately, none that I know of. The best advice I can give you is to disable java unless you need it for a mission critical task, then only enable it for that then disable it again.
