4. Plugin support

Support for plugins is changing for some modern web browsers because of security, performance and stability issues. Companies may stay with a browser vendor version which supports plugins. ISIS Papyrus is committed to continue support for Internet Explorer and Firefox that support plugins. With Papyrus WebClient we provide an alternative technology which fits into a modern web-applications stack.
