ZDNet reported on Oracle bundling adware in Java for Mac.

For several years, Oracle has been bundling the Ask toolbar with its Java software for Windows PCs, often using deceptive methods to convince customers to install the unwanted add-on.

With the latest release of Java for the Mac, Oracle has begun bundling the Ask adware with default installations as well, changing homepages in the process.

I have stopped using Java on my Mac for the past few years and haven’t missed it at all.
