> From what I understand Java WebStart should still work, just not supporting "applet embedded in the page". Applications launched by WebStart should be unaffected. Or am I missing something?

When you click a JNLP link (or button, invoke javascript, whatever...) the browser downloads a JNLP file then runs javaws to open that file. Beyond that there is no involvement with the browser.
