Oracle has announced that it'll soon be killing off the Java browser plugin, news that security-conscious users and IT professionals will no doubt welcome with open arms.

In a brief blog post, Oracle acknowledged that by late 2015, many browser makers either removed or announced timelines for the removal of plugins that use the old Netscape Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) standard – a decision that eliminated the ability to embed Flash, Java, Silverlight and other plugins.

Good.  One horrid piece of poop plugin down, more to go.  Killing the ability to embed the plugins in popular browsers is probably what it will take to get websites to stop requiring them.
