I don't know what happens when you install in other ways. It will probably be browser dependent, and of course OS dependent as well.
When I install a newer version on Java do browsers 'automatically' start using the newest version, exclusively?

I did not say anything like that and to be honest I don't really care for people putting words in my mouth. Just to be sure you are not misunderstanding things like so many people that pass through here - I don't work for Oracle, this is a user to user forum.
So I guess you're saying that the safest option is to uninstall all older versions.
