A plugin object represents a single plugin that is registered with the browser at launch time. Access to a single plugin is normally via the navigator.plugins array. It is also common to use the navigator.mimeTypes array and associated properties to uncover whether the browser has the desired plugin installed before loading external content. Most of the properties provide scripted access to information normally found in the About Plug-ins window available from Navigator's Help menu and IE/Macintosh File Helper preferences. IE for Windows uses a different technique (involving the object element loading ActiveX controls) to determine support for playing external media.
