What are some websites that use JavaFX?
(excluding Oracle, and sites that provide 3rd party JavaFX libraries)

I was wondering if JavaFX is good enough in an enterprise setting.

JavaFX is a desktop technology, not a web technology.

Thank you for the clarification.
I assumed that it could be used for the Web since it had a Web rendering engine,
and could support JavaScript and CSS. It's not the case after all.

JavaFX has a WebView component that uses Webkit to render HTML. Here HTML5 / CSS / JS can be used. By using this component you can integrate a web view or web application in your JavaFX application. Some companies use this to show the help of an application, for example. In this case the help is a HTML page that is styled by CSS. The help can simply be displayed in a JavaFX application by using the WebView component. In addition JavaFX can call JS function in the WebView and JS that is running in the WebView can call JavaFX.

I didn't know WebView was based on WebKit - that's cool, so it should be able to handle most modern web sites. Some more info I found: http://news.kynosarges.org/2013/12/29/webview-the-other-javafx-ui/ and especially http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/webview/jfxpub-webview.htm

Yes, by using the component it's easy to integrate google maps or a youtube video in your application.
Some examples:
