Because that is *actually* true of browser/JS, and not for Java.

* Most Windows computers do not have Java.
* Java is officially deprecated on Mac OS X.
* Java will never, ever be available by default on any Microsoft
platform
* Java is not included in the default installation of the overwhelming
majority of free software operating systems
* Neither the most popular tablet nor the most popular smart phone (the
iPad and iPhone, respectively) have Java at all.
* Java requires software installation of some variety (unless you're
seriously going to suggest using Java applets in 2011 with a straight
face...)
* Java recently has acquired a lot of legal questions making it not
exactly the wisest investment for new technology.
* There are many cutting edge modern browser implementations, and
activity here is moving at an astonishing pace. Java is a dinosaur.

This is not the 90's. The client side Java dream failed.

Regardless, if I may take the liberty of speaking for this community,
making people use Java for something is a sure-fire way of ensuring they
don't use it. The reasons why don't really matter. The browser Just
Works. Java is a PITA.
