Google Chrome decides to make Internet Explorer better.

What do you do if you are Google and have only 2.84% of the Browser market and your biggest competitor Internet Explorer has cornered a massive 66.97% of the market even though most versions of their browsers do not support a majority of HTML5 apps?

You inject you self into the competitor and the take over :-)


Google has released Chrome Frame plug-in for developers. It allows Google’s Chrome to run inside Internet Explorer.

What does Chrome Frame do to Internet Explorer?

It looks like some App developers at Google were so bored or frustrated with IE6 and IE7 being not up to the mark that they came up with a way to infect the browsers and make them better all by themselves. :-)

This is mainly a tactic by Google to make sure developers are not stuck in the future when they introduce Google Wave to developers sometime in the future for which older versions of Internet Explorer are obsolete.

So is IE really that bad that Google actually have to make it better? :-)
