Software Incompatibility Feature Lands in Chrome Labs

flattr this!

The newest feature to land in the latest builds of Chromium is an optional background check for software incompatibility. As more code moves directly into the realm of the browser, this makes sense.

knownconflictsThis removes some fear in my mind of an endless succession of browser crashes due to plugin incompatibility. While Google has taken steps to avoid this by baking in Flash and a PDF reader, there are going to be plugins required for certain applications that may not play well with others.

Plugins are inevitably going to be a part of the equation despite efforts to move everything in HTML, JavaScript and Flash. Games are likely to be one of the software categories that will require extra plugins for things like three dimensional capabilities. If a web application does something in depth like modify video, audio or images there may need to be a particular plugin for that as well.

Any other examples of plugins I may have missed?
