not really.. one of the news media outlets that reported about the Java
plugin being removed said in the first line of their article, "Now that
Chrome, Firefox, Edge & Safari don't support plug-ins anymore...". the
article later made a clarification.

all browsers support plugins. and almost all of them have their own plugins
running including Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla.

I don't know if this image will come through but they all use plugins, and
some or all are making new controversial plugins
<https://hacks.mozilla.org/2014/05/reconciling-mozillas-mission-and-w3c-eme/>
for DRM content. i don't know but i think they might have been trying to
intentionally get rid of plugins not just for traditional reasons but
possibly for advertising and possibly to control online video piracy / DRM.
read the article above. mozilla is actually against one of their own
plugins (linked above) but included it anyway.
