I have found that if Java is disabled by way of the Java console, then it does not work in Chrome. Chrome comes with its own version of Flash, but not Java, so far as I can see. If it did, then why would it not work when Java is disabled in the Java console? There are plugins for Java in Chrome, so it is possible to disable Java in Chrome without disabling Java completely or uninstalling Java. I did not want to uninstall Java so that is why I disabled it via the console as well as disabling the plugins.
OK, rcdailey.. i saw another article, somewhere, recently, where it was talking about disabling "java" because of another vulnerability that it had and the article said to use the "java" settings that can be accessed from windows "control panel" to disable it, and also to disable it in the chrome-browser's settings-options, so that was where i got the idea that chrome had its own version of "java" which could only be disabled from within chrome's settings-options.. i don't use "chrome" so i am not familiar with it..
i wish i could remember where i saw that article that talked about disabling "java", but i can't remember where i saw it..
