Mozilla’s plugin check checks and shows update status of all Firefox plugins, this plugin check service is not limited to Firefox, but available to all browsers. It’s interesting how Google Chrome deals with plugins, Google Chrome auto-updates flash player whenever security updates for flash player are released. For remaining plugins installed in Chrome, you need to manually check for updates and install them when available.
But do you know, there is an extension developed by Google named Secbrowsing, which periodically checks for Google Chrome plugin updates and alerts you when plugins are out of date.
After installing Secbrowsing extension, when Chrome plugin are not up-to-date, it alerts user by showing red icon on chrome’s Omnibox. Clicking that icon takes you to Google Chrome Browser plugin Check and shows update status of plugins and also offers download link of particular outdated plugin.
Unfortunately, this Google Chrome Plugins version checker hasn’t that much popular as Mozilla Plugin check.
Yet another plugin checker that doesn’t got the limelight as Mozilla Plugin checker got is Qualys BrowserCheck.
