Google There are numerous ways to improve your browser experience if you're somehow still using Internet Explorer. You can download a modern browser with proper standards support, like Firefox or Chrome, but there are numerous scenarios where this isn't possible. One of those is in corporate scenarios, where a lot of people still rely on Internet Explorer. A solution here is Google's Chrome Frame, which just went into beta.

I guess it helps by having users use internet explorer (so the ActiveX-based corporate apps still work), and automatically switching over to a different rendering mode for everything else.

No retraining for the UI, no "use Browser A here, Browser B there"...

Basically, it's a migration aid

The problem is that IE6 works with Google which for a lot of corps is good enough.

It's an interesting idea but this plug-in won't have any effect on corporate IE6 usage.

IE6 usage is about 5% in NA which means a lot of websites can ignore it. It has dropped over 50% in the past year so just give it some more time.
