Oracle Java and Adobe Flash are a dead end and should not be used.
Microsoft has a project, codenamed “Anaheim”, that is currently slated to replace Microsoft Edge for Windows 10. Instead of continuing to use the company’s EdgeHTML engine, Anaheim will reportedly be built upon Chromium’s open source Blink engine.
Even firefox has dropped support for NPAPI as well as Java and Flash.
Websites and publishers which currently use plugins such as Silverlight or Java should accelerate their transition to HTML5.
Adobe is constantly updating flash due to security holes.
Adobe Kills flash in 2020.
