Apple released an update on Wednesday to its Mac OS X software that removes the Java plug-in from all web browsers within the operating system.

Once installed users will receive a message stating “missing plug-in” when they use content on the web that requires the plug-in, but users can download the software themselves if they need it.

There’s no official reason for dropping the plug-in from the standard install, but an educated guess tells me that they have done so in order to cut down on viruses and malware, which is a must do after the Flashback trojan infected 600,000 Macs worldwide.
