Is there some way to improve the question?
Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic. See On Topic. Thanks for giving that insight, David. I suppose you could interpret the rules in that way. It's not that clear though, as other, similar questions were upvoted such as Where can I find really old versions of Firefox? I understood asking for a 'product recommendation' as asking 'What is the best browser to use' and such.
They should have been close voted as well. Note that the first of those links is a 6 year old question and what is accepted as on-topic has changed over the years. Please don't assume that something that was considered on topic a long time ago would still be on topic if posted today.
In addition, off topic questions do get upvoted people think they are useful , but that doesn't magically make them on topic. You might want to try Slimjet which is built on top of Chromium but continues the support of Java. Check out this link: slimjet.

We can glean from the data above that programs without automatic updates are typically the least secure. For example, iTunes constantly asks users to update, which is annoying.
This leads people to ignore the updates and leave an insecure version installed. Lately, most security holes in macOS have been thanks to oversights from Apple itself. I need to install NetBeans for something.
Information about Oracle Java for Mac - Install, remove, revert Apple Java 6, Chrome has disabled the standard way in which browsers support plugins. Java and Chrome. The Java Plugin for web browsers relies on the cross- platform plugin architecture NPAPI, which had been supported by all major web.
The Mac version ships as an installer package! But then it wanted me to install Java….
Nope nope nope. Firefox provides this version for business environments; it provides the latest security updates but waits longer to roll out feature updates. The current version, 52, supports Java and other legacy plugins will be available until sometime in Q2 Think Again Flash isn't the only browser plugin that presents a risk to your online privacy and security.
Here are three more plugins that you probably have installed in your browser, but should uninstall today.

Most browsers still support it due to its popularity, but Adobe will kill it off in Until then, take care to make sure you update Flash on your PC. Chrome does so automatically, so you may not even have it installed anymore which is great. So in short: Java is still insecure but poses less of a risk thanks to browsers disabling it.

I had outdated Java installed on my system for a while because a All the browsers I used blocked it b Everything else on my system was kept up to date c There seemed to be no quick way of just removing it like everything else that was easily removable on my system. Does anyone know if it is still possible for a Mac to get infected even with both a and b above? I am a diabetic and was excited when my new glucose meter allowed me to download monthly stats to my PC. I was then disappointed when their app ran in Java SE. I will have to pass on installing Java just for that one application I may use once or twice a month.
Yes, its probably less of a issue now that none of the browsers support it with a plugin. Thank you for your reply. I have done this - but no effect. The issue is it's not showing up in "about:plugins" see attachment and I have NO idea why it's not installing properly though.
I don't know why I can't get Java to install at all on my Chrome on my desktop and it's driving me nuts having to use Firefox just for Java usage. Can someone please shine some light on the subject? I'm tired of seeing "restart" comments when they clearly don't work or resolve the issue I actually want someone from Google to come forward and speak Plug-ins - Google Chrome. What lemmecomment and tyty said. Java worked fine with chrome until I updated from Java 6 to Java 7 update Java plugin is enabled.
In chrome. What's wrong Chrome Techs????? Any Google Chrome technicians out there??
You gonna fix this annoying Java update problem that isn't a problem with all other browsers??? Okay so Java just asked me to update, and I've been ignoring it for a couple of days now, and before the update I had Java 6 installed before update 39 I guess and after updating to update 39, it works? And I can now see Java in the list of plugins that I have. When Java asked me to update, I closed Chrome before I started the update, so make sure to do that, or restart Chrome if you leave it open during Java update. But for others that doesn't seem to be the case.
