Firefox 3.6 Will Only Like Java 6 Update 10+

Just in case you're eagerly awaiting the next version of Firefox (a beta version of Firefox 3.6 is scheduled for some time next week), it's worth taking note that you'll need to be running a version of Java that's 6 update 10 or later in order to run Java applications in the browser. If an earlier version is installed you'll simply see a box where the application should be with a link to download the latest version of the Java plug-in.

Although I'm not sure what this might mean for Mac users as Apple haven't properly released their version of Sun's new Java Plug-in that came with Java 6 Update 10.
