The content of this string depends on what the plugin developer coded. It might be helpful for debugging and maybe you could present a list of installed plugins to the user. The standardization of the plugin descriptions is likely to be worse than that of the Navigator.userAgent string and therefore trying to formulate rules for parsing these descriptions is going to be difficult.
