If you do have Java installed, you need the icedtea plugin.

sudo apt-get install icedtea-plugin

Restart your browser and Java should be working.

icedtea is a NPAPI plugin that Chrome/Chromium no longer supports. –  Redsandro Jul 24 '14 at 23:11
This works for Firefox, but not for Chrome. –  eveevans Apr 15 at 20:02

Java have a page that shows you how to do this. Java Instructions

The following is the instructions from that page

Follow these instructions to enable Java in your web browser on Ubuntu Linux. Google Chrome

  1. Become the root user by running the su command and then enter the super-user password. Type: sudo -s
  2. Create a directory called plugins if you do not have it. Type: mkdir -p /opt/google/chrome/plugins
  3. Go to Google chrome plugins directory before you make the symbolic link. Type: cd /opt/google/chrome/plugins
  4. Create a symbolic link. Type: ln -s /usr/local/java/jre1.7.0/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
  5. Restart your browser and test Java

Hope this helps
