Chrome plugins

Chrome PluginsAs useful as our browsers are at giving us access to content on the internet they are not as useful without plugins. Some websites will not function properly, or have limited functionality, without specific plugins installed. Adobe Flash Player is one of the most popular web plugins but various other programs utilize plugins to provide seamless integration while you are surfing the web. Fortunately, there is an easy way to check the plugins that are installed for Google Chrome and disable or uninstall those that are not needed.

To see the plugins installed in your Google Chrome browser simply type chrome://plugins in the address bar and press Enter. This will show you a list of the plugins that are used by your Chrome browser along with a brief description and a link to disable (or enable) them. You can also click on the Details link at the top right of the page to see more information about the plugins such as where they are saved on your computer.
