Plugin-based browser games require a form of web browser plugin to function. Some of these may include Java, Shockwave and Flash Player. Most modern browsers provide a method of installing such plugins if they are not installed.
A growing number of games are being created using server-side scripting, in a language such as PHP, ASP, Ruby, Perl, Python and Java. Games such as this typically only send the user's browser HTML code for interpretation. Some include Ajax to allow the user to see immediate responses to their online actions and make the games more visually appealing.
