Why, In 2016, Is It So #$%@ Hard To Access a HIK Product (Camera/NVR/DVR) From a Simple Browser?

and I will be glad to eat crow if I just missed the memo on this, but it seems like it's always a crap shoot, every time I attempt this with a new customer. Yes I know about Google's chrome changes, have even played with the IE Tab add on.

These incessant plug ins continue to pop up, even on my service laptop if I try to access a different camera or NVR/DVR. It's very frustrating. Once in, the browser interface is fantastic. Just seems like there would be a simple predictable way to send instructions to a customer and have them use it without major intervention.
