    To me also, Java is lot more simpler and easier than C#. Sure Java has no great GUI editing like C#, but GUI editing is for Newbies not Advanced users...

    Last time i checked, Java isn't even active in Firefox as embedded content. I'm using it because of Minecraft and it never even interacted with the browser.

    so do you write code yourself or you blowing smoke up your own wazoo to try to build your ego:clap:

    Mac has always been vulnerable to many attacks. Who do you think hackers will attack, the least popular OS (Macintrash) or the most popular (Winblows 8/8.1)? (love smug Mac Users- not very bright)
