  • While the idea of keeping the plugins under control by shuffling them to the side is a good one, browser devs should keep in mind that, with all the limitations that a plugin is subjected to, with NPAPI being very far from perfect, with browsers implementing it differently, OS differences that plugins have to deal with as well, it's already so difficult to have a performant plugin (and believe me, the last thing we want to do is stall the brower), we shouldn't have to be worrying about potential reentrancy issues and race conditions when doing such simple things as querying the browser for a property value.
