As part of removing Flash support in M88, we are deprecating the chrome.browsingData.removePluginData and DataTypeSet.pluginData APIs in the same release.  Calling removePluginData() or remove() with pluginData specified will be a no-op. The chrome.browsingData.settings API will return false for dataToRemove.pluginData. They will be removed in a future release.

Christian,

Except plugin data, I noticed Application Cache (AppCache) will be removed in Chrome 90. So 'chrome.browsingData.removeAppcache' method will also be removed or do no action at that time, right?

I don't know how the Appcache deprecation will be handled. I assume the methods will become no-ops as well. 
pwnall@, do you know what is planned?
