I run my own blog, am upgrading to self-hosted site, and have found that to do some of the scripting and file work I have to run Java. Previously, I had disabled Java because of the issues surrounding it and Mac.


My questions:


What is currently recommended for running Java? Old Apple release or most recent update?


What is the best/safest way to run Java? Only enable it when needed? Use on one browser? Best browser option?


Any concerns should I have?


I really want to keep things running well as I continue to work on this, so any input is appreciated. Thanks.
