I normally update Java when recommended to by Apple Updates, but this one worries me a little. It disables Java applets for all browsers apparently, which Apple seems to think is necessary (though I'm not sure how I'd even know if I was on a site that needed Java?). However, it goes on to say that if the Java plug-in hasn't been used for a while, it gets disabled! Aagh - what does that mean? Will that cause me problems in the future?


Bottom line - should I install this update or not?
