opera and unity addon ??????

  • heyhey opera people love using this browser been using it for years but now it looks like I will change to other browser u stopped using unity cant play my games with opera browser annymore so alreaddy changed to other browser and my games works perfect think u guys should think about maybe a bad bad idea to stop using unity addon for opera I now stopped using opera becouse of this

  • just found out that more browser programs will drop this unity hmmmm why ?
    and how can we play games in browsers that needs unity to run ?

  • The browsers are dropping support for all NPAPI plug-ins because it's an old plug-in architecture that brings security and performance problems to the way modern browsers are programmed, on top of that I'm sure they're the source of many crashes... They aren't able to "fix" NPAPI because that would bring incompatibility with those plug-ins (Google for example decided to create PPAPI instead), and in return the companies that created those NPAPI plug-ins probably can't recreate them (because PPAPI is a more restrictive system and there aren't alternatives for Firefox and Microsoft Edge) or don't want to (for monetary reason or redundancy with features already in HTML5 and WebGL for example).

    Taking words from the Unity blog post:
    "It will be necessary to use either a browser which still supports NPAPI or on older version of a browser released before NPAPI support was dropped."

    On the users' end: basically people who absolutely need to use Java, Unity and other specific NPAPI plug-ins will have to use two browsers: Internet Explorer (or another outdated browser) to access their plug-ins apps/games and another browser of choice for the rest of the web.

    On the content publisher's end: the developers of those games/apps would have to reprogram/republish them as HTML5/WebGL web apps or standalone platform-specific apps.

  • The issue is with google chrome...

  • and obviously all -google- based browsers will suffer from it.
