Ubuntu: Oracle Java Browser Plugin

Web8 has create ppa for Oracle Java which installs not only java, but the web browser plugin.  You can find the details here.  Here are the cliff notes version:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

Once you've install Java you need to disable the IceTea plugin in your browser.

Now you should be able to run java applets using Oracle's Java.
