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!

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

How have they been shown a lesson? They don't want people to use IE6 and they don't want an outside company to encourage its use. Did you notice that IE8 contains an IE7 compatibility mode but not one for IE6? That's because they want people to dump IE6, not use hacks to keep it working.

As I stated earlier the real problem is with IT department heads, not MS.

Even though this plug-in has obvious benefit to some it is going to allow a lot of el cheap-o companies to extend the life of their Windows 2000 workstations.
