Java and Quicktime has been removed? Please add it back.
why do we remove Cookie detection? This is useful if the number we currently detect is accurate.
Java - Refs #744
Quicktime - refs #683
WRT QT, we could revert #683, given #852. If there's sufficient interest, we could also revert #744. But we should document the limitations of the plugin detection and rationale for doing so, so this isn't a FAQ.
Perhaps we should consider a public survey/poll?
(In ) fixes #857 - add Silverlight and Google Gears detection; revert #744 & #683, restoring Java and Quicktime detection given #852. Kept "Cookie". AIR not detectable.
