Netscape 6.5[edit]

I don't recall Netscape 6.5 shipping. All we are aware of is a t-shirt with a prediction that turned out to be false.

I'm not sure what this should have said. But someone should have checked their sources before writing it.

Good catch; I found an old Mozilla article which suggests the feature was first added in Netscape 6.1, so I'll change the article accordingly. Could still do with a more concrete source, but it's better than listing a non-existent version. - IMSoP 20:48, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

M$ bias[edit]

Is this about NPAPI or Micro$oft technologies (IE, OLE, COM, ActiveX)? Because for me it's very M$-centric. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sasq777 (talkcontribs) 20:02, 9 June 2008

Dead link[edit]

Writing scripting plugins with Mozilla is a dead link —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.177.204.14 (talk) 22:15, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Google Chrome Extension[edit]

[1]

Its say that you can't use NPAPI prior consent of Google, i.e. while it is possible to use NPAPI, Google is "discouraging" (not allowing) to use it.. And since it is virtually impossible to contact Google (Google doesn't have a proper call center / help desk), then it virtually is disallowing to use it. --200.83.2.4 (talk) 18:57, 24 November 2009 (UTC)--200.83.2.4 (talk) 18:57, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

Yes, Google discourages the use of this due to security concerns (NPAPI code must be trusted so also must be secure; NPAPI plug-ins have historically been a large source of security issues). 134.134.139.76 (talk) 01:24, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Pepper?[edit]

https://wiki.mozilla.org/NPAPI:Pepper It says pepper is obsolete and PPAPI (pepper plugin api) or pepper2 is the new redesigned api. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.240.99.150 (talk) 21:19, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Pepper or the PPAPI was originally implemented as a fork of NPAPI but after Mozilla backed out, Google decided to just rewrite it instead of trying to push changes back on Mozilla—so in essence it used to be a derivative work but is no longer. 134.134.139.76 (talk) 01:22, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

GWT Debugging[edit]

It's probably worth noting that the GWT live debugging of generated javascript running in a browser, whilst looking at the parent java code in eclipse in a stepping debugger is all hooked together with NPAPI http://www.quora.com/How-does-GWT-live-javascript-debugging-in-Eclipse-work-and-how-could-it-be-applied-to-Clojure?__snids__=43385373 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.149.43.34 (talk) 12:14, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
