VMware vSphere Web Client plug-in is the program that extends the user interface for VMware vSphere Web Client to a browser

The VMware vSphere Web Client allows an administrator to connect to a vCenter Server system and manage a vSphere environment.  VMware allows third-party developers and partners to customize  plug-ins with product-specific toolbars and icons. 

Popular VMware vSphere Web Client plug-ins include:

 vCenter Orchestrator - a vCenter feature that helps automate VMware vCloud Suite, vSphere and other virtualization management system processes.

Client Integration Plug-in - provides access to a virtual machine's console in the vSphere Web Client, as well as access to other vSphere infrastructure tasks.

vSphere Storage Appliance - transforms local storage into a shared storage resource that runs virtualized applications.

Cisco Nexus 1000v - a Cisco NX-OS virtual switch  for multi-tenant services.
