Guys. You are trying to kill Java applets. Yes, they are a security vulnerability. But they are a much safer way to serve computation-intensive client-side content on the web than the only alternative, downloading and installing executables. (Not to mention that it's impossible for companies to provide executables for all architectures.)

So, to slightly reduce your legal vulnerability, you're going to force those of us who want such content to take on HUGE security risks.

(Though I suppose eliminating applets provides a competitive advantage to Google, which has more server resources than any other company.)

I'm grateful for Chrome, which is free, but we need Java applets. Move forward, not backward.

Realistic painting died once cameras were better at it than humans.  What will happen to surreal art now that computers are better at it than humans?

This is a terrible idea. Now I can't sign into any Google services without inviting everyone who ever uses that computer in the future to try to log into my account. It doesn't save any time--username fields are already autocompleted in every browser. It does nothing for the user. Do you really have so many google accounts that you can't remember them all?

I suspect the real purpose is so Google can link the activities of different accounts in the hope they can target ads more accurately.
