+Browser plugin
+--------------
+
+There are two browser plugins supplied, called "oldplugin" and
+"plugin".  They are not built by default, so to build them you have to
+enable them during configure:
+
+  ./configure --enable-plugin
+or:
+  ./configure --enable-oldplugin
+
+"oldplugin" is a full Gtk-VNC widget embedded inside the browser.
+Unfortunately this turns out to be a bit unstable (occasionally
+crashes the browser).
+
+"plugin" is much simpler - it just launches an external virt-viewer
+program.
+
+To try out the plugins, drop the 'virt-viewer-plugin.so' file into
+your plugins directory (eg. $HOME/.mozilla/plugins or
+/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins).  Then try browsing to the 'test.html' files
+which you will find in the corresponding oldplugin or plugin
+subdirectory in the virt-viewer source.
