Say Good-Bye to NPAPI – Dynamic Web TWAIN 10.0 Preview (HTML5) is Released!

Aug 21, 2014

We have been working constantly to make sure our software is at the cutting edge. And today I have a piece of exciting news for you – Dynamic Web TWAIN 10.0 Preview (HTML5 based) is now available! As you might have known, Chrome will stop the support for NPAPI Plugin at the end of 2014. Chrome will completely disable all NPAPI Plugins, including the Plug-in Edition of Dynamic Web TWAIN, at the end of 2014. By that time your end users will no longer be able to scan documents in Chrome with the old Dynamic Web TWAIN solution. That’s where Dynamic Web TWAIN 10.0 Preview HTML5 based solution comes in. It enables web scanning in both Chrome & Firefox, and right, no need for the NPAPI technology anymore! Try the new solution for Chrome & Firefox in action » Besides the HTML5 support to Chrome & Firefox, more exciting improvements are included in this new version –

  1. Added Disk Caching mechanism. This feature enables scanning in big volume which used to be limited by the size of physical memory.
  2. Added JPEG compression type to TIFF encoding/decoding. This feature reduces the size of TIFF files significantly.
  3. Much improved image editing features like ChangeBitDepth, GrayScale, etc.

For more details, please refer to Release Notes of 10.0 Preview. I’d love to hear any comments or suggestions about this new version. Please don’t hesitate to contact us ( Cheers!
