As yesterday Google has rolled out Google Chrome Frame, a plug-in for Internet Explorer which will allow running Google Chrome inside the IE. Through this plug-in it would be possible to run HTML 5 and other features of Chrome browser in Internet Explorer and maybe by this strategy Google will get success to pull some of the users of Microsoft web browser. In return of this Google’s strategy we were expecting such an other response by Microsoft but they are taking it just usual.

According to Microsoft spokesman:

“With Internet Explorer 8, we made significant advancements and updates to make the browser safer for our customers. Given the security issues with plug-ins in general and Google Chrome in particular, Google Chrome Frame running as a plug-in has doubled the attach area for malware and malicious scripts. This is not a risk we would recommend our friends and families take. For a deeper look at how the browsers stack up in security, take a look at the latest phishing and malware data from NSS Labs.

  1. Lol, it’s common knowledge that NSS labs testing is funded by microsoft… sadly, that’s the only way Microsoft can get ‘away’ in rankings of anything

  2. this is Microsoft’s strategy that they don’t bother others.

  3. The main reason that I have seen to install the google chrome framework on IE is for the HTML5 support.

    If any of you did your homework you would find out that HTML5 is not only an unreleased standard, it is currently FULL of security issues in the current proposed state. I don’t use IE and I couldn’t give a rip about Microsoft but I also would not enable HTML5 on my browser yet.

    But hey, don’t trust me … read for yourself. Here is Ming Chow’s presentation from Defcon …

    Completely ignore HTML5 because of sessionStorage and cross-origin javascripting? What a load of rubbish. What about CSS3 support? What about media embedding? I mean, seriously, if we want to progress the web we should all embrace HTML5 now because – as with HTML4 – the final release will be years after all browsers, including IE, (almost) fully support it.

    Microsoft is just scaremongering to cover the fact that they are still way behind the competition in terms of browser capabilities. IE9 surely seems to be the light at the end of the tunnel.
