2012 Browser Plugin Rundown
I recently moved to the newest version of OSX, 10.8 Mountain Lion, so that of course means that I spent some time updating applications, clearing out old plugins and just in general cleaning out. For your benefit and my own archival reference, here is a short list of all the plugins and extensions I had been using in my browsers, grouped by engine. Enjoy.
