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)
Google Chrome Extension
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. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:57, 24 November 2009 (UTC)--22.214.171.124 (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). 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:24, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
https://wiki.mozilla.org/NPAPI:Pepper It says pepper is obsolete and PPAPI (pepper plugin api) or pepper2 is the new redesigned api.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 188.8.131.52 (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. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:22, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Internet Explorer support
When I have to run a Java app that we use at work I switch from Chrome to IE 11 and I can still use the Java plugin. I believe there is direct NPAPI support in IE 11 and there has been through many earlier IE releases. The ActiveX control that was a shim is not the same thing when you're listing which browsers have NPAPI support. -- DeweyQ (talk) 17:23, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
- Internet Explorer 11 uses the ActiveX Java plugin, not the NPAPI plugin. -- Lonaowna (talk) 14:31, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Regarding this edit: Opera is very vague on their NPAPI status. I have verified (but do not have a proper source), that Opera 36 still supports NPAPI plugins. But version 37 seems to drop support (finally). I hope they do a proper announcement when they release version 37, so we can finally clear this up. --Lonaowna (talk) 17:44, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
- Okay, Opera 37 was released today and I have tested it to confirm that NPAPI support is gone. I can't find a proper source however. -- Lonaowna (talk) 12:07, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
- A publicly quotable Opera reference that they stopped NPAPI: http://www.opera.com/docs/history
