Summary0004232: chrome version not detected before suggesting Taler plugin installation
DescriptionRight now, we suggest to all visitors of the page that they should click to install the extension. We should

1) detect if they actually use chrome/chromium or a compatible browser, and if not inform them that their platform is not yet supported;

2) detect if the version of chrome/chromium they have is sufficiently recent. I had someone try it, just to despair in the Google App store because the "install" button didn't show. The reason was (presumably) that their Chrome version was ancient, and then the app store detected the incompatibility. We should try to detect this issue earlier and warn the user as in case (1).

TagsNo tags attached.

manifest.json already contains
  "minimum_chrome_version": "47.0.2526"

if this is incorrect, it should be fixed there.

installWallet() also refers to the webstore,
that's where the version check takes place.

I suspect maybe old Chrome versions don't enforce this manifest-check? Regardless, the point of this bug was to do the check in the JS of the landing page and to tell users there that they need a more recent browser.
