    Phoronix: Mozilla Continues Moving Away From NPAPI Plugins

    Firefox continues making progress on loosening web developers' and users' dependence on NPAPI plug-ins with a goal still in place to remove support for most NPAPI plugins by the end of 2016...

    Good
    It seems that lately everybody is contributing to dump this proprietary crap at least from the web

      Flash is great!
      Just turn on Flashblock and you get rid of all shit content from the web and you also very secure.

      Without Flash, its much more difficult to block junk content.
      Also with new APIs in the browser, it opens up a bigger target surface for attacks.

      Firefox still lacks syntax highlighting support for CSS, JavaScript and JSON in View Page Source.
      Still no GTK3 support, still no Wayland support.
      Still no HTML input type date/time/datetime support.

        "Except Flash"
        But Flash is the only plug-in I have in FF.

          I don't have Flash installed in my computer and I wish extensions.gnome.org could move away from NPAPI.

            I beg to differ. My Firefox Aurora (Developer Edition) has been intermittently refusing to respond to input events following exit from the Save As dialogs ever since they switched to GTK+ 3.x a version or two ago.

                Nobody wants to use java in the web anymore.

                    Will Mozilla still support Flash internally on Linux Firefox like Chrome does, despite removing NPAPI and still planning to support Flash with Windows Firefox?
