    Thanks for this. This one has popped up often when I visit some websites with my Google chrome. <br/>chrome has its own flash extension built in, so when I first saw the Java popup I was a bit confused.<br/>I've since learned that my Java updates when necessary and should not need a webpage to tell me its out of date.
