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!

I'm not making any excuses for Microsoft but this sounds like a typical 'cover-your-ass' (CYA in my line of work) move. If Microsoft did not discourage the use of this google plugin then any security vulnerabilities that may come up due to the use of the plugin would fall back on them.

I think it was more of a move to tell users that they are using the google plugin at their own risk. So, this is not really a big deal.
