I have to use Java Applets for my online college, but that's about it. A few online games still use Java over Flash (thank god). They are getting rarer, I must agree. I don't think it is because java is bad. It's just that the market Java was targeted to is more diluted with other 'easier' solutions like flash.

I think it's more of a architecture problem. The x86 is a horrible creature, which has an inefficient language. What x86 does in a huge set of instructions, Arm can often do in 2/3 that many. All Mhz does is eat more power and generate more heat. The answer is smarter digital languages.
