Well, some people do fine with non-proprietary runtimes.
If you need Java, in some cases 1.3 might be fine (what are the problems in porting 1.4; are there many runtime-additions?). For Flash: I got it turned-quasi off most of the time (Flashblock extension on Camino). Rarely do I come across a website with Flash navigation, and then it's usually not even worth it.
