As most of you already know, Google's going to remove support for NPAPI based plugins from its Chrome Browser (have a look at this link).
Is this just another nail in the coffin of JavaFX, or has Oracle planned to develop a non NPAPI based plugin for Java ?

I don't think so. JavaFX 2+ is primarily a platform for development of stand-alone applications, not applications embedded in browsers.
So I think Chrome support for NPAPI has very little impact on JavaFX.

Not that I am aware of, but I do not know all of Oracle's Java plans.
