the link also works for me too , you can try look into your browser preference , or can try to clear everything , or can try other browsers like opera , or heck , reboot your machine and try again today or tomorrow or whatever day you like ... i mean do not hate anything too easily ...

hope that you are able to download your java soon ...

btw ... if possible try downloading the whole jdk instead ... it could come handy one day ...

Lnxquestions, where are you located ?

If you are trying to download from an US embargoed country, that may explain the issue.
