I’m having a hard time finding a browser plug-in (or applet viewer) that will use Java 1.7. I have java 1.7 installed, and I use it for Minecraft, Cartographer, Eclipse and Oracle SQL Developer, but when I go to Sun/Java’s website and ask for the latest browser plugin, I’m told I already have the latest one, and the console says “1.6.0_23”.
I guess I’ll have to wait until Oracle/Sun or OpenJDK publishes a browser plugin that will use Java 1.7 for the VM. (I think Oracle is abdicating to OpenJDK as the reference implementation from 1.7 on anyways.) Might as well close this bug report with “could not reproduce” in the meantime.
