Per discussions in https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/454 we're trying to see if other browsers are willing to follow Chrome's lead and remove support for <applet>. So far it seems like Edge is in favor as well.


- Do *not* change the parsing rules for <applet>
- Remove HTMLAppletElement
- Make document.applets always return an empty HTMLCollection (even if there are <applet> elements in the document).

Would WebKit be interested in this change?
