I'll look at that. The macro touted by Gruber to open pages in Chrome doesn't work. Hadn't seen anything else.

I used Chrome for about 6 mo. I like it, but the interface isn't "Apple" and doesn't integrate with iOS. I'll check out the link when I'm back on my desktop :)

The hits just keep on rolling! http://arstechnica.c...r-flash-player/ Noted a number of sites no longer worked with Chrome's built in flash player probably because of these updates.... That's the first time it's happened to me but a major hit to my recommended strategy for avoiding installing Flash. Best to just kill it with fire I guess.

Security updates out yesterday:

After that update responsibility for maintaining Java on OSX revert to Oracle, so now Apple no longer holds you up when you want to get the latest version of an insecure 3rd party plug in =)

Safer, but not nearly as safe as removing Flash entirely:

Give Safari 6.1 a shot.  HUUUUGE speed improvement.  Truly snappy!  

 

And at this point any web site still using Flash is pretty much a must to avoid anyway.  I've been running Flash free and using Safari for over a year now and I sure don't feel I've been missing anything

So do these things ever effect Chrome users, or just flash plugin installs?Still Flash free, starting to wonder more and more about who is keeping Flash alive at this point and why?

Ask adware has always been bundled with Java, but now the radio button to install is automatically checked instead of unchecked. Like the article states, they are preying on the users who simply click "next" during all installations without actually reading and comprehending what they are doing. Java is still ass though.

Logitech Harmony software still requires it. I wish there was another universal remote option. But I haven't found anything.

You know my thoughts on that, if an employer requires Java or Flash they can pay for the machine.
