This is one of those things that I can’t stand about the Internet. Companies use people’s vulnerabilities to force products down their throats. Case in point. Java recently made everyone download a security patch. But if you quickly download it (like I did) and don’t look at what you’re downloading, the next thing you’ll see is the ‘Ask’ toolbar taking over valuable screen real estate on top of your Chrome browser.
Java is owned by Oracle. Why is Oracle baking the Ask toolbar in all of its downloads? Hmmm.
