Well great! I must use Java for my work. I teach remotely over the internet for a large online education company. That is almost 600 teachers and around 100,000 students. They use Blackboard Collaborate. It is Java based and launches it's own window outside the browser. I can't imagine how many other platforms require Java on a daily basis but Oracle needs to make sure it is secure.
[citation][nom]d_kuhn[/nom]I just disabled or uninstalled Java to avoid the issue... I'm curious to see how much trouble it causes (web pages not loading properly). So far (2 days) not one problem.[/citation]If you're not running Java applications and/or applets you shouldn't encounter any problems.
