I did it once. It was with "pneu bis", a French tyre retail. Their online site was crappy with Firefox. I looked for the CEO's name on "societe.com", and I wrote a letter with the market share of web browsers, and I said it was stupid to get cut of more than half percent of their future customers because of webmaster's ignorance. I don't know wether the webmaster was fired or sent to broom department, and I don't care, but now the website runs perfectly whatever browser you use.

Maintaining a current java version can be a pain.

Ubuntu Manpage: update-alternatives - maintain symbolic links determining default
Or, if you just want to use the newer version of Java for your web browser, just recreate the symlink in the plugins folder utilizing the new java directory.
