No more legacy plug-ins and features

Why is it important?

As your visitors access your website from a plug-in free browser or device they expect the site to function normally. If you’re using plug-ins or unsupported features they may be missing out on content or features on your page.

What will we look for?

We check if the webpage has a plug-in other than Adobe Flash and PDF. Microsoft, and other industry leaders have embraced a vision of progressing the web towards a plugin-free experience.

How can you fix it?

We suggest building a plug-in free experience with web standards like HTML5 & CSS3 to reach the widest possible audience across browsers and devices.

    It is a shame Microsoft ditched its very own Silverlight, both in Windows 8(.1) RT and Edge. Also, Adobe Flash Player has a PPAPI extension for Google Chrome. Chrome will stop supporting Silverlight at all in a few weeks. Why let Silverlight die? The bloated, unsecure alternative from the big A is not far better.
