I remember having my new Gaming PC build at the local PC store, this guy was telling me that He never use Java now due to poor security.

I know that Flash players are required in order to play on some website..

My question is, in order to be more secure, can I remove Java completely? Or Do I need them?

Thank you for your time..

I think Indonesia needs Java.

In terms of the coding language, I uninstalled Java long ago and haven't noticed any problems with the programmes I use. It really depends on what software you have installed.

Edit:

You also mentioned Flash, but that is on its last legs. The browser developers are steadily removing support for it and websites will have to migrate to HTML 5 or other systems if they want to continue (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-36856449).
