Subscribe.

Java and Quicktime has been removed? Please add it back.

@mattab commented on July 8th 2009 Owner

why do we remove Cookie detection? This is useful if the number we currently detect is accurate.

Java - Refs #744

Quicktime - refs #683

@robocoder commented on July 8th 2009 Contributor

Because JavaScript cookie support isn't a plugin...

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 [1313]) fixes #857 - add Silverlight and Google Gears detection; revert #744 & #683, restoring Java and Quicktime detection given #852. Kept "Cookie". AIR not detectable.
