Apple has released version 6.0.4 of it’s Safari web browser.

The main and only reason for this update is to give you control over Java applet on a per-website basis.

When you visit a website which tries to run a Java applet, Safari will ask you to block or allow the applet accordingly. It results in Safari adding the hostname of the website being added to a list and you can manage this list of blocked/allowed websites for Java in Preferences > Security and clicking the “Manage Website Settings…” button next to “Allow Java”.
