    Default Ask toolbar problem solved, or at least... sort of...

    We all know the ridiculous, borderline malware Ask toolbar that Oracle bundles with the JRE? Well, they have fixed it... Sort of... You can now use the Java Control Panel item to suppress the "sponsor offer".

    Still, in my opinion they should have removed it altogether. Creepy toolbars are sooo 1998.

    This is what the setting looks like:
