Weird that a popular browser won't support a popular game engine.

I've never seen anything great come from the Unity engine, so this isn't that surprising.

It's fine with me, and I don't use Unity's plugin. I'd rather have a more secure browser.

How very odd, I thought the big thing about the Unity game engine was that it was (comparatively) easy to use and that it ran on pretty much anything.

Wait a minute... Silverlight too? *sigh* Now I'll have to look at alternate means of accessing US Netflix.

Netflix has an HTML 5 player. https://help.netflix.com/en/node/23742

To be fair Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty was done in Unity and has been very well received. The trick with Unity is that it is the engine of choice for a lot of new Indie developers so you get a mixed bag when it comes to titles (although I have not really seen anything specifically chrome based with Unity so I can only speak in general terms). It is surprising to hear Chrome is dropping support for it though.

Thing is, most reports of crashes that Chrome received came specifically from Unity- I suppose they were tired of getting those Unity Crash Report and trying to improve it.

Like Apple dumping Adobe Flash. Makes sense. There are plenty of other browser engines indies can use.

So many games are being made with Unity now, considering its cheap and accessible. But then again, most of those aren't browser-based games.
