Re:  

said by Mele20:

Oracle has made it so that there will now ALWAYS be at least one alert on any page that has Java applet. I get ONE alert at that game page. One is fine....it was the excessive number at the hair salon site that was so bad and the excessive number there is due to how that site is set up.

Actually, it is site (and Java applet) specific. You can tell the Java run time executable to always allow specific applets from specific sites. Until I did that for the internal web server in my HP print server (shown below), I got the warning popups for almost every mouse click, but after explicitly allowing that site (and all of its individual Java applets), I no longer get the warning popups. Of course the warning popups do occur for sites/applets that have not been white listed by me, and there are very few external sites that I would consider white listing (in fact, there are none at this time).




Prior to white listing that HP admin site and its Java applets, I would get six popups when just the index page was loading (and many, many more if I actually tried to look at any status page or make any changes).

I realize you can whitelist and that is fine for some program you own (like I would probably have to do if I were to install MySpeed on Win 8 computer) but white list websites? Nah. That salon site needs to be updated.
