For Mac users, it is trivial to download the Java JRE and plugin, and simple as pie to enable or disable Java, I've done this in about 30 seconds on multiple Macs....unlike the piece of sh*t implementation we deal with on Win 7 enterprise at the office where our payroll partner is about 3 generations behind on their Java config, so our systems are forced to use an older version for 'compatibility' reasons.....what a joke. There is a bunch of tribal wisdom in this thread that is just dark humor, if you catch my drift.
