Google brings Chrome to IE

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/bits/20...chrome-to-ie/1

Google has launched a plugin for Internet Explorer - Chrome Frame - which allows IE to use the Chrome rendering engine, and Microsoft isn't happy.

If you're at work it shouldn't be a problem using IE
. if you work in web dev/design then you should have whatever you want/need.

Google must have a feeling that they aren't going to be taking over the world with their own browser and their toolbar downloads must also be in the decline.

I am in complete agreement with Microsoft here as I am sick to death of going to third party downloads and being forever asked to download and install the "Come and make us some money and we will give you nothing!" Google Toolbar.

Download at your peril!

Doesn't install without admin credentials anyway. What's the point? If you can install this, you can install the full Chrome. Seems incredibly pointless

Well exactly. I suspect that the crossover of people who know they should get something better than IE and have the privileges to do so, yet for some reason don't just want to use some other browser, is microscopically small.

I think it's quite smart, to be honest. Haven't tried it yet, but the idea of being able to use a single browser that seamlessly switches to use Chrome's rendering and JS engines for sites that are optimised for / require it, is very slick. Much as I like what Google has done with Chrome, it isn't yet usable as the only browser on a machine, because so many sites are "optimised" for IE and break or look goofy on other browsers (though the situation is improving, largely because developers can no longer afford to ignore other browsers now that IE doesn't have a 90% share!).

I guess the question marks relate to how tight the integration is - does it interact with IE's history (so visited links show up as visited etc.)? Does it interact with saved form information, bookmarks etc. properly? Is its security behaviour governed by Chrome's settings or IE's? Will it pick up and play nice with IE cookies? And so on.

Please can someone develop an IE Frame for Chrome? I'm stuck using Chrome on my work PC and I need IE to be able to use the myriad sites optimised for its superior-ness.

I just like that they made IE8 run 10x faster by adding to it. They prove how superior chrome is and get a golden reaction out of Microsoft, hilarious.

The amount of people using will most likely be extremely limited outside of developers.

TBH this is the whole point I think - showing people how much faster/better the Chrome browser is. A PR gag.

I dont use Chrome on any of my systems except for and in this case I think its ideally designed for is my ASUS netbook. Chrome is perfect for such systems as for my other systems ehh I stick with FF.

If a google chrome plugin helps educate the sheep that there are other browser choices, then great, but skepticism steps in and says it is just another revenue generating tool bar as already pointed out.

Thanks Babe! I'm here to ruin the Google love'in some try to make. Especially the "Google is a really good company!" comments when some don't even know how Google make their money.

This topic highlights exactly what Google is trying to do and some are too stupid to realise it. If I'm wrong, please correct me.
