OSX: howto disable Java in Browsers

Well... Java, what can we say. Yes its a pile of poo.


But Java runtimes are needed because software developers like Adobe use it, and their products will not install or launch unless you have a runtime installed. Sigh.


Chrome:


In the address bar, type "about:plugins" or "chrome://plugins/", scroll down to Java and select "disable"



while you're there, goto "chrome://settings/content" and under plug-ins select "click to play"



Firefox:


Goto to Tools > Add-ons > select Plugins, scroll down to Java and disable



Safari:


Goto the Safari > Preferences, select 'Security' and deselect Java
