Of the ones that I know of (Flash, Java, Silverlight, and QuickTime)
none of them are free software. The vast majority of websites that
used these technologies have since moved away as plugins have been
disabled by default in browsers starting four or five years ago
(https://webkit.org/blog/6589/next-steps-for-legacy-plug-ins/) and
were never available to begin with on mobile browsers.
