Vulnerabilities affecting Oracle's Java plugin

We were reading about all the problems having the Java plugin enabled on any browser. And how it is possible for websites to launch software on PC's without the users consent. We  were wondering wondering for normal use (YouTube, Facebook, bank sites, Google,Yahoo) what type of impact would it cause to disable the Java plugin on all browsers?
Thanks

yes sure. I see no reason to activate java (JRE) on a client PC. the days java was used to display content are over.
If there is a website that needs  to use java at all costs, and there are users that need to have access to that website you can setup a standalone PC for all to use, containign no private or corporate data.

For most apps, you should be able to disable java.  If you hit a trusted site that needs java, turn it, browse that site and turn it back off when done.

We are thinking that there could still be other problems with future versions.
