Google delays demise of old-style Chrome plug-ins

Gregg Keizer | Nov. 26, 2014
Google on Monday gave traditional Google plug-ins a stay of execution and instead outlined a three-step plan that will finalize their demise in 10 months.

Chrome will finally be stripped of all NPAPI support in September 2015, when even an override won't work.

As Google continues to deprecate NPAPI plug-ins and eventually eliminate support, some users may need to run an alternate browser — such as Firefox, Opera or Safari — to interact with sites that require the older technology.

"What about Web pages, like most — if not all — banks in Brazil, that need Java?" asked one user in a comment appended to Schuh's blog.

Google offered more information on its Chrome plug-in strategy in a developers guide available on its website.
