Hi

I need to download Java to open a certain html. I need suggestion of a safe site to download. There are quite a few when I search and I don't want to click on anyone until I know it's legitimate.

Thanks

ORACLE owns the Java brand and java.com website (your browser should say "Oracle Corporation (US)" in the URL field before the URL)

Another one is directly from oracle.com:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html [Broken]

where you can get the java runtime (JRE) needed for opening a java applet or java webstart which sounds like what is on the web page you want to open.

jedishrfu, or any members who know:
that webpage address you gave, http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html [Broken] shows two different kinds of versions. One of them is jre8u111 and the other right below it is jre8u112. Their descriptions don't show any differently. Is one of them as good as the other? How or why would choosing one or the other make any difference? The page does not make this clear.

This page, http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html [Broken], says the following:
Java SE 8u111 includes important security fixes. Oracle strongly recommends that all Java SE 8 users upgrade to this release. Java SE 8u112 is a patch-set update, including all of 8u111 plus additional features (described in the release notes).

Hi

I downloaded and installed Java and passed verification. This is the website I want to get into, and get the Java on the first place:

http://www.rythmikaudio.com/subtuner2.html

This is just the site of a high end sub woofer I bought, it's supposed to show how to set it up, nothing special. But I couldn't get into it as Java consider it's an unsafe site. I followed the instruction to go into control panel, Java , security and try to input this site for exception and have no luck. What do I have to do to get into this site?

Thanks

What do I have to do to get into this site?
After inserting the site url into "Exception Site List", you have to close and restart your browser.
