You only need it if you need it.
It's the same as any software in that it allows you to run certain applications.
You need it on some estate agent sites to be able to see a virtual tour of a house for sale.It's also used to play certain flash games on the net.So if you try to run something and it says you need java,then yes you need it.
Until then,no.

but I was in the dark about Java, and posted this thread a while ago.
It may give you some background until others appear to lighten your darkness...:-)
