In chrome://plugins, I've messed around by enabling/disabling some plugins. Now I want them back to the "default" state.

Is there any way I could do that?

For me, Chrome NaCl / DivX VOD Helper Plug-in - Version: is disabled, but I forgot what its default value was. The same goes for a couple of others.

A fresh Google Chrome 11.0.696.71 profile on Mac OS X contains:

  • Flash (enabled)
  • QuickTime (enabled)
  • Java (enabled)
  • Chrome PDF Viewer (enabled)
  • Chrome NaCl (disabled)
  • Default Plug-In (enabled)

It looks like everything except NaCl is enabled by default.

To find out the definitive defaults for your configuration, just move the Google Chrome profile data temporarily, or launch Chrome on a user account that hasn't used it before (e.g. a newly created one if you have to).
