JavaRa - Removes older versions of Java Runtime Environment

I was very happy to find this little gem. Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is software that allows you to run applets on your computer, so it's very useful, but whenever you get the most updated version, the older versions remain on your machine just taking up space. JavaRa will search for the most recent version and clean up older versions. From the web site:

"JavaRa is a simple tool that does a simple job: it removes old and redundant versions of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). Simply select "Check for Updates" or "Remove Older Version" to begin. JavaRa is free under the GNU GPL version two."
