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!

Technically, what you said is not right.

Each browser is built of two main parts:
1) HTML/CSS/Javascript handling part
2) Main application

What this plugin does, is to 'replace' the first part.
So its NOT 'adding' any security whole. If there is a security whole in trident (IE's html/css/js handling stuff) it will not be applicable when this plugin is active.

And since this plugin, is actually webkit, and webkit is far more safer and cooler than trident, practically it will increase the damn security.
