Historically, web plugins such as Adobe Flash, Java applets, Silverlight etc were used to deliver rich user experience to users in HTML-only browsers. As HTML5 support became more widespread offering the same experience but in standards-based manner, web browser vendors started to gradually end support for these plugins due to compatibility, maintenance and security concerns. In long-term website owners should thus plan to replace the plugin-based functionality with one based on HTML5 features.
