Actually I didn't, I went for Windows x86 Online 0.61 MB, and made sure I un-ticked any add-ons prior to the installation.

The X86 install is needed if you need to use Java in Firefox.  If you are running any 64 bit program that requires Java you will also need to install the X64 version.

I use the offline installers as one is less likely to get an add-on program which isn't needed.  I've never gotten anything but Java when using the offline installers.

Well I don't use Firefox anymore. I only use Google Chrome. All of my other programs are x86 except my WINRAR which is 64-bit. So I should go for the online installation of Java 8 x86version (online). Since my current Java 7 is 32bit. I only see streaming movies and stuff like that on my google chrome.

I have Java installed for a couple of programs I use that require it.  I have it disabled in my browsers via the Java Control Panel, as I haven't found a site I need to utilize that requires it.  Doing so eliminates one more potential vector of exploitation.

As for me should I install the 32-bit or 64-bit of Java 8 in my laptop? Currently I have the 32-bit version of Java 7.

It's to you to decide which you need. You may not have a need for Java at all.  Only by knowing what programs you have installed that may use Java, or what web sites you visit that require Java to work can you decide.  That is not a choice I can make for you.  The responsibility is all yours.

I would tend to go with the bit version that Avast is reporting.

FYI, I don't know if any of you run CollabNet Subversion Edge servers, but if you do, it's not yet compatible with JRE 8.
