» Ask anyone if they want this

Ed Bott:

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 would never even install Java if it weren’t for Minecraft. And I would never install Ask for any reason.
