It turns out that #JavaScript language is the VM of the internet

That is the quote of the day and it shows why Java is dead :
Everybody thought that the Java VM was going to be the VM of the internet, but it turns out that JavaScript language is the VM of the internet. People are writing in Java, and Python, and lots of other languages, and then translating it into JavaScript because JavaScript, for all of its security problems, actually has a much better security model than everybody else. The CLR has a terrible security policy, Java has a terrible security policy — JavaScript is better than everybody else.
