Mac OS X It's one of those days again. A supposed security threat appears, and the internet loses its collective brain and starts panicking like Alpha and Omega's kingdom come. This time around, it's a trojan horse thing (it's a trojan, worm, and root kit all in one, though) that targets Mac OS X and Windows. As it turns out, though, the threat this thing poses is not very large (at this point in time).

What on earth are you using it for anyway in your web browser?

We need to use Java (with OpenGL) to do stuff like Minecraft (or any of the other lwjgl games (lots)).
And this is of course only one example. There are many things that simply cannot be done, easily - or not at all, in a cross browser fashion using html/5.
