    Minecraft Doesn’t Need Java Installed Anymore; It’s Time to Uninstall Java

    One of the big complaints Minecraft players have is that Minecraft runs on Java — it’s a pain to deal with because it’s insecure and needs frequent updating to avoid exploits, and they’d rather not deal with it at all. Thanks to a new launcher, Minecraft no longer requires you to install Java, so you can finally remove it.

    The short version is that Minecraft is now bundling a standalone version of Java into their installation and it doesn’t have the security problems and annoyances that regular Java does. The really great thing is that Minecraft should actually run faster in our testing if you use their version instead of the version you already have installed.

    The Parents’ Guide to Minecraft
    Minecraft is and, for the foreseeable future, will remain one of the most popular video games among children. Behind all those millions upon millions of downloads are more than a few curious parents; read on as we help clear up some misconceptions and give curious parents a crash course in the game.

    We’ve written extensively about Minecraft here at How-To Geek, but not everyone is interested in taking an in-depth look at Minecraft as a potential player. Some people like parents, educators, or curious relatives of avid young players just want a crash course that provides a general overview of the game, a better understanding of the online elements of the Minecraft experience, and a general sense of what the game entails. Let’s take a look at Minecraft from the perspective of a curious parent and run through (hopefully) everything they would want to know about Minecraft to better understand the game their kids are currently obsessed with (or desperately want them to buy).
