Google "Today, most people are using modern browsers that support the majority of the latest web technologies. Better yet, the usage of legacy browsers is declining significantly and newer browsers stay up to date automatically, which means the leading edge has become mainstream. Given these factors we've decided to retire Chrome Frame, and will cease support and updates for the product in January 2014." Eh.

That was my feeling, too. If an environment isn't going to permit the installation of Firefox or Chrome, odds are it's not going to permit the installation of Chrome Frame either.


It's not always a "lockdown" thing as much as it's a "I don't know how to install multiple browsers and switch between them" thing.

Most of the corporate users I am familiar with have the freedom to install multiple browsers - but often times they're stuck with some crappy web app that only works on IE7, and so they make that their default browser.

With Chrome Frame, it was pretty much transparent when it was in use - and you felt like you were using the same browser everywhere.

I'm not trying to justify keeping an old IE7 going with Chrome Frame, just explaining how I've seen it in use.
