Hm. OpenJDK passes 99,9% java compatibility tests. I haven't had any
problems so far. I have found pages not possible to watch with SUN's
jre but working with OpenJDK.

It might help to have only one java runtime pkg installed and you
should source /etc/profile.d/openjdk6.sh or even relogin. What browser
are you running and what website failed?
