Internet Explorer Earlier this week, Google launched Chrome Frame, a plugin for Internet Explorer 6/7/8 which replaces the Trident rendering engine with Chrome's rendering and JavaScript engine for better performance and superior standards compliance. Microsoft has responded to this release, claiming it makes Internet Explorer less secure. Note: What database category do I put this in? Internet Explorer? Google? Choices, choices!

When someone fixes your crap for you, you thank them. And Google Chrome Frame is basically a copy of Chrome, sans, er... the chrome. It uses the same automatic, silent update system as Chrome. Any security flaws can literally be fixed for all users within 24 hours. You have no argument left Microsoft. Get your act together and instead of scaremongering, fix your crap.


In this case, like Thom previously stated, this is a slap in the face for the IE team at MS. Thanking google (a competitor in the browser market) would be like saying thank you for showing us that the work we've been doing for the last few years has been completely and utterly useless. If they had conceded that, it would have meant a restructuring of that team for sure.

Hopefully they can get this right next time around now that the've been shown a lesson.
