 <p>Guacamole actually already attempts to do this leveraging the <a 
-API</a> defined by the W3C. Browsers only
-provide access to the clipboard under very strict circumstances, so these
-attempts will fail unless the browser itself provides some means of explicitly
-granting clipboard access.</p>
-<p>IE10 and IE11 will both prompt the user to grant clipboard access, and 
there is
-a <a 
 extension for
-which provides similar functionality. Until a generic mechanism for granting
-clipboard access exists across all browsers, these are really the only 
+API</a> defined by the W3C, with support
+for the asynchronous version of this API added via
+vary in their level of support for this API, and some only provide access to
+the clipboard under very strict circumstances.</p>
+<p>The following browsers are known to support clipboard access:</p>
+  <li>Google Chrome version 66 and later (via the <a 
Clipboard API</a>)</li>
+  <li>Older versions of Google Chrome using the third-party <a 
 Permission Manager extension</a></li>
+  <li>IE10 and IE11 (via the older, synchronous version of the API)</li>
+<p>This can be expected to change as the asynchronous version of the clipboard 
+gains wider adoption.</p>
