What if you run NetBeans, Eclipse or a zillion other Java-based apps? I think they mean you should disable Java in the browser, not on your computer in general, no?
I don't know what they mean. But I know what I mean. I want to say -
1. If you are NOT using anything that need Java then uninstall it from your system. You should do same thing with any other software that you are NOT using.
2. Most of people don't need Java as they don't use any Java-based apps. And most of them don't know how to disable it in their browsers.
