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!

"Which they could have done anyway by installing another browser such as Firefox,

Well of course that is always an option but for a lot of companies adding a plug-in to IE6 is much more appealing than adding a browser that isn't designed to be used with active directory. Most people have no idea has to how entrenched IE is in the workplace due to active directory integration/central updating.

Doesn't matter anyway, according to the Google Frame download page, it only supports XP SP2 and newer. (responding to your previous assertion that this allows corporations to continue using Windows 2000)
