Google Google Chrome Frame is an open-source plugin that adds HTML5, Canvas, a fast JavaScript engine and more to Internet Explorer; in fact it just swaps out Trident with Webkit! Developers can opt-in to the feature on their sites via a meta-tag / HTTP-header and prompt users to install Google Chrome Frame if they don't have it. Update: Correction, they don't support the HTTP Header.

Consider this then. Every piece of software you add to a computer adds another potential door for hackers to get through. While I have considerably more trust in Google's code than I do Microsoft's I'm still not going to load it up on every computer just so they can render the Acid 3 test correctly. Until some real benefit pops up I'm not going to install it at all. We restrict web access here anyways so probably the sites they want to see are blocked to begin with.
