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 is released. For remaining plugins installed in Chrome, you need to manually check for updates and install them if available.
But do you know there is Google developed extension ,Secbrowsing which periodically checks for Google Chrome plugins updates and alerts you when plugins are out of date.
If Secbrowsing extension installed, it alerts user by showing red icon on chrome’s Omnibox when Chrome plug-ins are out-of-date.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 update .
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 .
