The Java Vulnerability May Not Be Fixed; A Tale for Two Browsers

It
has been suggested that this update does not end the problems for Java. In
fact, some experts on Java are recommending that Java not be used unless
necessary.  If you require Java, here are
two suggestions:

    • Turn Java on only when you
      need it and turn it off when you don’t.
    • Use two browsers: A primary
      browser with Java disabled and a secondary browser with Java enabled for
      when you need it.

My
recommendation is for two browsers.  That
is what I have done on my ultrabook where I need to run a Java app on occasion.  I use Internet Explorer for my general
browsing and I am using Firefox when I need the Java application.
