It auto closed Safari, but Chrome was open during the update. Doesn't Chrome handle it's own browser plug-in updates? I should be OK then right?

It only comes with Flash built in. After a restart it should be ok, but you can look up what version it is using.

The irony of common sense, it is not that common.
I cannot deny anything I did not say.
A kitten dies every time someone uses "then" and "than" incorrectly.
I mock people who give their children odd spelling of names.

"Apple has also failed to patch the JavaScript hole in OS X versions 10.5 and earlier, which Hypponen says accounts for 16 percent of Macs, though the majority of Apple computers have been protected."

For Chrome...Apple Computer supplies its own version of Java. See more information on Java’s support website

How do I test whether Java is working on my computer?
