Java in firefox on 64-bit ubuntu 9.10

I just found out that Sun finally decided to make a java plugin for AMD64 on ubuntu. This is great news considering all the troubles people have been through to get java working in their browsers, like chroot'ing a 32bit system and running their browsers through that.
Of course, for some time icedtea would be an alternative for a 64-bit java plugin for your browser, but not everything have been working as intended.

But, with the 64-bit java plugin from Sun, true java support have come to your browser, and the best part is that it's dead easy to install:

sudo aptitude install sun-java6-plugin

and that's it!

Oh yeah it works for Chromium too.
