Changes are coming to Google Chrome, including one that will end support for plugins like Unity Web Player. Consider installing a browser which will allow the use of plugins, such as Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer.

More on the official announcement here.


so starting in January 2014, Chrome will block webpage-instantiated NPAPI plug-ins by default on the Stable channel.

these include

Silverlight
Unity
Google Earth
Java
Google Talk
Facebook Video

From Google in September of 2013, "Meanwhile, NPAPI’s 90s-era architecture has become a leading cause of hangs, crashes, security incidents, and code complexity. Because of this, Chrome will be phasing out NPAPI support over the coming year."

Again, from Google, "Stable channel: This channel has the full testing of the Chrome OS test team, and is the best bet to avoid crashes and other issues. It's updated roughly every 2-3 weeks for minor changes, and every 6 weeks for major changes."

I'd suggest reading https://www.chromium.org/developers/npapi-deprecation for more information.

brought this up now as its only now they have decided to send notices of this, strange other browsers have never has any issues with NPAPI's.

I wonder what is going on at google, just look over HD and you will see its the latest thing google is removing.

I don't like google chrome. Firefox browser is much better for me.

Maybe they will provide a option to run this manually.
