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!

I am sure MS isn't happy about this. May be they will block this with Windows Update so Google will have to catch up and re-enable it again if they do so. Pretty much like Apple and Palm.

Hopefully there is a switch in the registry to enable this feature on by default.
