    FUSE allows you to access filesystems that aren't native to MacOS and if you aren't actively using it for anything, then you can definitely remove it.

    I tried it once with their NTFS plugin but it wasn't that reliable and I removed it. I've since then tried it for SSHFS but again didn't have much luck with it and resorted to SMB instead which is already a supported FS within macOS.

    OK how about Java and Flash Player ? Sometimes Flash Player is required for me to open and view websites, but I don't think I need Java and its not enable for long time, do I deleted or keep it??
    Thanks in Advance

    You should definitely remove any standalone Flash components. If you absolutely need to visit a site that has Flash content, use Chrome which has a Flash player built in. As far as Java goes, again if you are using it for any applications, you'll want to keep it and update it to the latest version, otherwise it's safe to remove.

    The bulk of the "regular" users won't need to be running Java on their machines.

    Chrome is a different browser, like Opera, Safari, FireFox and so on. Opera is based on a similar engine like Chrome, but it has things (VPN for example) that Chrome doesn't and Chrome has things (Flash support for example) that Opera doesn't.

    You can grab a copy of Chrome and keep it handy when you need it.
