question

(OP)
I am not a professional sorry but what does it mean when I read a article that says Mozilla is going to have plug ins but Chrome isnt? or something like that  

RE: question

Maybe if you show us the article ...

Cheers,
Dian

RE: question

Plug in's are mini add on applications that run within the application, but are not actually part of it.

Think of a basic text programme. It allows you to change the font and format but that's all.
Someone writes a spell check "plugin". This, although not part of the main programme, still runs within it.

Examples of Firefox ones.

Robert Wilensky:
We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.
