So is there any clean centralize way (JavaScrip Lib)to deal with issues like listed below or is it possible to have one good library for the same in YUI.
1. Detect/Download plugins and provide feed back to user.
2. Z-Index issue (Which in case of the Flash swf file can be fixed by using the 'wmode=opeque' property). However PDF, QuickTime and other plugin have there own issues on different browser OS combination.
Main nightmare of ZIndex is DHTML content, like menu, drop down, popup are getting hidden behind the plugins. Browser getting slow on overlap of plugin and DHTML content etc.
3. Showing and controling look and feel like power buttons etc.
4. Displaying progress regarding download, how much time it will take to start etc.
Do add comments/links/opinion/thoughts if u have one to share that will be great help.
