When I do that it screws up most web sites, including this one.

Very few web sites use Java, they use Javascript

Those are not the same thing.

I went to the Java website and it said that Chrome doesn’t not support Java 7. If I download it I would not be able to run it.

I don’t understand the instructions.

Can’t I just go to “Manage Add-ons” in IE or Firefox and disable Java? If not, do you follow both the Windows removal instructions AND the IE disable instructions?

You may find this more understandable: [Link:…]

That leads to the same instructions.

Again…can’t I just go to Manage Add-ons and disable Java?

Important: The first step in this process for both PCs and Macs is to make sure that you have the latest version of Java. This may seem counterintuitive, but it is required for the rest of the instructions to work properly.

For PCs running Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8:

Download Java update: Click here to download and install the most recent Java version: [Link:…]
Open Windows Control Panel—Windows Vista and 7:
From the Windows Start Menu, click on Control Panel. In the upper right, click on the View by: drop-down list and select Small icons.
Open Windows Control Panel—Windows 8:
Press the Windows key + ‘W’, enter “Java Control Panel” in the Search box, then press Enter.
Disable Java: In the list of Control Panel items, click on Java (or Java 32-bit) to open that item. Click on the Security tab, then uncheck the box Enable Java content in the browser. Click OK to apply the change and exit the Java Control Panel
Close and restart your browser.
These steps will disable Java in all browsers. You do not need to disable it in each web browser, provided you have followed step 1 above and updated to Java 7.11.

For Mac OS X:

Download Java update:
• On the Apple menu, choose Software update.
• If you receive the message Software updates are available for your computer, click Show Details.
• In the list that appears, check to see if Java is one of the updates listed. If not, you may still optionally install any other updates that are available from Apple.
• Click the Install button and wait until the updates are installed.
• Follow steps 2, 3, & 4 for each browser installed on your computer.
For Safari web browser:
• On the Safari menu select Preferences
• Click on the Security icon/tab.
• Uncheck Enable Java (do not uncheck Enable JavaScript)
• Close and restart Safari.
For Chrome web browser:
• On the Chrome menu, choose Preferences.
• At the bottom of the page, select Show Advanced Settings
• Under Privacy section, click Content Settings
• Under the Plug-ins section, click the link: Disable individual plug-ins
• On the Plug-ins page, scroll to locate Java and click the Disable link on the far right in that entry. The Java entry will now be grayed out.
• Close and restart Chrome.
For Firefox web browser:
• From the Firefox Tools menu select Add-ons
• Select Plug-ins tab in the left column
• Locate plug-in called Java Applet or Java Embedding Plug-in and click the Disable button to the right of the entry. It will now be grayed out.
• You may also have a plug-in called Java Plug-in 2 for NPAPI Browsers. Disable this plug-in the same way.
• Close and restart Firefox.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
