I am not sure if this is accomplishable.  If the mime type is registered to open in the browser it will unless you specify that the file is of an unknown type.

Try various ms-excel content types and file extension combos.

I think this depends on versions of browser as well as plugins. So the same plugin with different version behaves differently with the same browser.
