Since Google Chrome version 42, users are faced with the fact that the Silverlight plug-in does not work in this browser. Given the fact that the web has a significant amount of content produced using this technology, the problem is quite relevant (used alone and more than one browser — it is not the optimal solution). The reason that the Silverlight plug-in does not start on Chrome latest versions is that Google refused to support NPAPI plug-ins in browser and just since version 42, such support is disabled by default.
