For Chrome users there is an add-on from Google itself available at Chrome Web store. Visit the below URL and install the add-on.
This add-on acts in the background and periodically checks for outdated plugins and notify you, if found any. Otherwise you will not find any trace of this add-on after installation. That means no toolbar icon if all of your plugins are up-to-date.
