After developing plugins for browsers , the things which sucks is that , the end user needs to re start the browser , for the plugins to be effective . This really kills the user experince. Is there any solution , to solve this issue.
I found this documents , which talks about NPN_ReloadPlugins API ( the Browser_Plug-in_API_Developers_Guide_v2_0_en.pdf )
Dont have a way ahead , as toSends a request to the browser to reload all plug-ins the <A to Z>/apps/plugin/ directory.
The browser searches all drives from A: to Z: for new plug-ins.
The browser installs any new plug-ins it finds into that directory and loads them without restarting.
1. Is this one of the solution?
2. How does a programmer , implement this?
