This past week, while attempting to launch an Ignition Project in Applet mode using the Chrome browser, I was prompted for a Java Update. The result of this update was that the applet wouldn’t run in Chrome unless you go to: chrome://flags/#enable-npapi and click enable npapi.
Further I read: that google will be COMPLETELY DISCONTINUING npapi functionality by Chrome release v45 due sometime in 2015.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Why is a chrome limitation being spurred on by a Java update? (Chrome browser didn’t change)
Is I.A. aware of the impending discontinuing?
Will Java have another way to embed their content in Chrome browser?
Obviously there are work-arounds to not supporting Applet mode in Chrome browser, but it just looks bad when the product is no longer supported by the most used browser.
