Some sites use Java. Flash has pretty much taken over.
You can try running without Java. Simply disable it or more drastically uninstall it.
If you want to try running without Java and need help to disable for your browser(s),
just ask and tell us what browser(s) you use.

I'd say the best way to find out if you need it is to uninstall it and see what, if anything, breaks. Java is not needed for any system-critical functionality and you can always reinstall it should you find that you need it.

In any event, always make sure that you have the latest version of Java (and all other applications.)
