    "Finally managed to update Java on my laptop"

    July 25, 2014   |   By Sheafferkin

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 Update 65

    Pros

    Actually installed an updated version of Java, according to the Java website, unlike what the java website kept trying to install.

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    I'd tried several times to update from the Java site and it didn't seem to be working. I kept getting stuck with version 7 update 45 and a website I visit often kept telling me my version of Java was out of date. Downloaded this, ran it, Firefox restarted and loaded java.com, which checked and confirmed 7 update 65. Thank you CNET, for hosting this. I think java.com is trying to install a 64-bit version that won't work with Firefox on Windows. You'd think they'd know better...

    "Runs well in Win 8.1."

    February 08, 2014   |   By GCG1000

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 Update 51

    Pros

    Runs as advertised. No problems. The app that uses JRE works.

    Cons

    None at this time.

    Summary

    JRE is OK.

    "Invisible except when updating"

    November 29, 2013   |   By Bengl2011

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 update 45

    Pros

    Seems to work - not aware of any errors or crashes, unlike most other software.

    Cons

    Frequent updates - always have to uncheck boxes for unwanted add-ons.

    Summary

    I always install the updates just in case it really helps - I dislike the reverse advertising though (you accept unless you actively decline!)

    "JAVA deployment in Firefox is vulnerable."

    November 07, 2013   |   By terryfoofstix

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 update 45

    Pros

    Easy to update - I've tried it at least 10 times...

    Cons

    Java Deployment Toolkit has been blocked for your protection. In Firefox JAVA requires too much intervention.

    Summary

    Not being much of a technical person, I rely on these updates to be rather transparent when I install them. I really am very frustrated with this add-on.

    "I wonder about them!"

    November 06, 2013   |   By bikeboatski

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 update 45

    Pros

    Supposed to make things run better

    Cons

    frequent updates.
    annoying reminders

    Summary

    I wonder if the main reason for the updates is to sneak in new advertisers because if this is the case and I found out I would ditch it in a heartbeat. I hate being tricked or having my time wasted by greedy advertisers.

    Anyone know for sure? Please inform?

    "This is a hidden software & I have not had any trouble"

    September 27, 2013   |   By RamblingRam

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 Update 40

    Pros

    Seems to run good in the background without any problems or trouble. Does what it's suppose to do, and that's a plus IMHO.

    Cons

    None that I can think of at this time.

    Summary

    I would recommend anyone to download this software, as it seems to make your computer run better and eliminates some problems that might occur if you don't have it up and running on your computer.

    "Java updates are getting really annoying"

    September 26, 2013   |   By alanrc1234

    Version: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 Update 40

    Pros

    They are free, except for the wasted time involved in repeatedly downloading the same thing over and over.

    Cons

    I can't believe that all these incremental updates are really necessary. Plus Java tries to get the user to download the Ask toolbar and such. Bogus!
