    Just noticed that I have two versions of Java pluggins on my MacBook Pro -a PPC version and and Intel version. Preferring the performance of native apps, should I delete the PPC one, or is it redundant anyhow? (could this explain why certain websites (cult of mac for eg) are taking an AGE to load? Is it doing something under Rosetta?)

    Just curious.

    It would probably be a bad idea to delete the PPC plug-in. You may have to run a Java-dependent app in Rosetta. Without the PPC plug-in, you are SOL.

    They're two different versions: 1.3.x vs. 1.4.x. Leave them both there.
