    Java is used by many programs and websites for content delivery and interaction. SItes like Pogo Games uses Java as do millions of others. The new version resolves security, compatibilty, and performance issues as well as adds new features.

    You had Java 1.4, which had security holes in it, which are fixed in version 1.5 (also called 5.0)
