Great idea to separate the browsers, then enforce that separation. Sounds like an elegant -- and yes, above all still quite usable -- solution for any business or person needing to use a browser that runs the Java plug-in.

Hi Kraegan, thanks for the question. The vulnerability is in the Java runtime environment on desktops, with the worry focusing on the Java browser plug-in. JavaScript is not affected.

re: 10 Facts: Secure Java For Business Use
This problem was solved at my previous employer by allowing Firefox to be installed on to the Desktops. Users were advised to use IE for accessing intranet apps (internal apps) and FF for general browsing. Lot of our internal apps were using client side java applets (for some reason). Users didn't complain a bit. Always, there is a danger that some employees might use IE for surfing internet, but there was a security setting, which would prompt users whenever Java applets are used on the "Internet" sites. I guess that provided some degree of protection without compromising the usability

Sun Java architecture or Javascript server side processing language? I'm not quite sure which this article is referring to.
