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'm actually quite confused -- what IS the definition of a browser nowadays? I used to define it by the HTML engine, but with WebKit that idea is now flawed.. I don't understand if Google Chrome Frame is Internet Explorer or Chrome pretending to be Internet Explorer; if it's the latter case then this is more of a marketing (albeit consumer-friendly) move for me..

Can you tell me if Google Chrome Frame can show this page properly?

It works just fine in Firefox 3.5. AFAIK, it should work in Google Chrome Frame.

It doesn't work in IE at all.

How about this page:

http://tinyvid.tv/show/2tbf9gddalxmh

(or the web app that it describes).

That should work too (but not in IE, of course).
