I uninstalled it and there was no complaint of any dependency.
It must have been a remnant from F13 when performed the
upgrade to F14, and the next yum update simply installed
updated the F13 version to F14.
Without nspluginwrapper, Firefox plugins run in the same process as
Firefox itself. This means that if a Firefox plugin crashes, it takes
down the entire browser.
With nspluginwrapper, Firefox plugins run in separate processes. This
should mean that a plugin crash only takes down the plugin, which can be
restarted (for example, by reloading the page).
Presumably, this also means that the plugins can run on separate
hardware threads¹: whether this makes any difference to browser
responsiveness is something I have neither investigated nor seen anyone
Hope this helps,
¹ by which I include separate cores
