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!

What is exactly is being fixed? MS already has a fix for IE6, it's called IE8. They just aren't forcing the update because a lot of software was built around IE6.

If you want to direct your anger anywhere it should be at IT departments who refuse to upgrade or even install an alternative browser along IE6. A lot of IT departments will only upgrade if they absolutely have to.

IE6 only has about 9% share in North America and will continue to drop in the next few years as many businesses dump old xp machines for windows 7.
