Ah, the era of NPAPI (Netscape Plugin API) and the joy and pain that it has brought to everyone. Now, it looks like Google has finally took a much needed step to get rid of it, which means that from now on, Java, Silverlight and other plugins from the 90s era won’t work by default as the API is off.

But wait, haven’t we heard that before? You are right, back in 2013, the search giant has revealed this very initiative as well as the full roadmap.

So what do you do if you still need NPAPI support? The good news is that you can still enable it and reap the rewards. The bad news? Google will be removing NPAPI completely in September, 2015.

The clock is ticking.
