    Thanks, Cliff! Glad somebody's keeping up with this, now that Secunia PSI is about to be withdrawn from use.

    Is this safe to use?

    Depends on what you mean by "safe to use?" NICE still recommends against any use of Java for security reasons. Many websites still use it anyway. It's as safe as Java gets, subject to the security vulnerabilities that it brings along with it. I still use it, and AFAIK it has never been a cause for concern. But then I don't visit risky sites or do much outside of work-related stuff on the Internet anyway. YMMV, as the old acronym goes.
    I hope that answers your question, @Josey Wales.

    Thanks Ed, I think Firefox Blocks it but I will try it.

    It did so I removed it.

    Wrong JAVA
    Just to go a little deeper for ap1978: What is the difference between Java SDK, JRE, JVM, Java SE Runtime, and J2SE? - Quora

    difference between JDK or SDK, JRE ,JVM, Java SE and is

    1. JDK (Java Development Kit) provides environment to develop and run java applications.
    2. JRE (Java Runtime Environment) the one this thread is for: provides environment only to run java applications. For example, you installed java application in client machine, then the client is responsible for run java application, not responsible for develop java application. So here JRE is required.
    3. JVM (Java Virtual Machine) is responsible to run our java application line by line. So here JVM is interpreter. More about JVM refer this JVM Tutorial
    4. JSE (Java Standard Edition) or Java SE or J2SE


    • Java Platform, Standard Edition or Java SE is a widely used platform for programming in the Java language.
    • It is installable software as jdk software

    5. JEE (Java Enterprise Edition) or Java EE or J2EE

    • JEE is not installable software, it is given as specification.
    • JEE specification contains rules and guidelines to develop web server and application server software like web logic, tomcat etc.

    Java Future Release Notices

    Oracle Java SE 8 Release Updates

    Public updates for Oracle Java SE 8 will remain available for individual, personal use through at least the end of 2020.
    Public updates for Oracle Java SE 8 released after January 2019 will not be available for business, commercial or production use without a commercial license.
    If you are a CONSUMER using Java for individual, personal use, you will continue to have the same access to Oracle Java SE 8 updates as you do today through at least the end of 2020. In most instances, the Java-based applications you run are licensed separately by a company other than Oracle (for example, games you play on your PC are likely developed by a gaming company). These applications may run on the Java platform and be dependent on Oracle Java SE 8 updates beyond 2020. Accordingly, Oracle recommends you contact your application provider for details on how they plan to continue to provide application support to you.
    If you are a DEVELOPER, Oracle recommends you review the roadmap information for Java SE 8 and beyond and take appropriate action depending on the type of application you develop and your distribution model.
    If you are acting on behalf of an ENTERPRISE, Oracle recommends you review the roadmap information for Java SE 8 and beyond and begin to assess your ongoing Java support requirements in order to migrate to a later release or obtain a Java SE Subscription, as appropriate, on a timely basis.
    If you are an ORACLE CUSTOMER who is licensed to use Java SE as part of another Oracle product, you continue to have access to Oracle Java SE 8 updates beyond 2019 for use with those Oracle products, see this My Oracle Support (MOS) note for more information.
    Further information is available on these sites:

    Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap
    JavaFX and Other Java Client Roadmap Updates
    Java Client Roadmap Update (An Oracle White Paper, PDF)
