Oracle, the makers of Java, have finally stopped producing the Java Plug-in for your web browser, as reported by myce.com. This should provide a number of website crashes initially over the next few months I should guess, with various websites not functioning correctly as the code gets updated.
What does this mean for you? Probably nothing but faster web page loading but initially you may find yourself having to REFRESH the web page in order to see the changes. From a security point of view however, if you still land on a website that has the above image or something like this, you should NEVER be clicking on it to update as you are only going to be installing malware and viruses!
