Ya can’t knock a useful Java update.
On Tuesday, Apple released its Java 2012-006 update for its Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) operating systems. The update, a 67 megabyte download, uninstalls the Apple-provided Java applet plug-in from all web browsers. To use applets on a web page, click on the region labeled “Missing plug-in” to go download the latest version of the Java applet plug-in from Oracle.
As always, the update can also be located and installed via the built-in “Software Update” feature in Mac OS X.
The Java 2012-006 update requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.7 or later to install.
If you’ve tried the updates and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.
