browser plugin info

Is there an easy way to get info from browsers on what plugins they have
installed? For example, what version of quicktime does the browser have
installed if any?

Thanks

php only has access to the info provided in the request headers and browser
plugins aren't part of that info. At least not last time I checked.

It just blows me away that people can't comprehend the difference
between a server-side and a client-side language!

No, of course "php can't do it" it isn't SUPPOSED to be able to
do it. That's not a bug, that's a FEATURE.

There are a couple of...

I know about smart clients and clickonce (below), I was just curious. This is almost a showstopper for developing educational software if there will never be any way to run it in the browser. I thought since ..NET can sandbox program execution it wouldn't be a big...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
