This has nothing to do with Apple and everything to do with Oracle. For whatever reason, Oracle decided to make Java 64bit only and since Google does not ship a 64bit version of Chrome, it can't use it (you can't load 64bit plugins in 32bit browsers). Blame Oracle, not Apple for this one.

I don't know how you uninstalled it but follow the instructions here. Assuming you've done that (and assuming you are using Lion as your post suggests), you should be ready to install Java 6. You could also just wait until a Java applet needs to be loaded since OS X will prompt you to install a runtime when one is invoked.
