@avl :: "For now it still works (in Opera 32)" -- I'm using Opera 32.0.1948.25 and Java v8u60 doesn't work. What are you doing about support for Java? It's not exactly insignificant, you know.

RE: Java plugin soon to be unsupported?Opera for Mac
Just got the "Java version soon to be unsuppported, upgrade to latest version" message, so I followed the instructions, un-installed Java completely and installed Java v8u60. I then went to the "Verify Java version" page and got this message:
"The Chrome browser does not support NPAPI plug-ins and therefore will not run all Java content. Switch to a different browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari on Mac) to run the Java plug-in. More info"
When I click the More Info link I get this page: http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/chrome.xml
Just to be on the safe side, I installed both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Java, but I get the same result.
Does this mean that Oracle doesn't support NPAPI (whatever that is)? If so, what are the implications? I switched to Opera from Firefox because FF had got sloooow and seemed buggy, and Opera has been great, but now it looks like I'll have to go back to FF.
Any answers, Opera people?
