IE WebKit Add-On - Part Duex (Google Chrome Frame)

Looks like someone at Google thinks a lot like me. They have announced an Internet Explorer plug-in that does just what I proposed in my blog entry from a few months ago.

Not surprisingly, it doesn't look like Microsoft is too happy about it, although the reasoning behind Microsoft's objection (i.e. it makes IE6 less secure) is anything but logical. Come on MS, you got to be able to come up with something better than that!

A bit more surprising (at least for me), is that Mozilla is not happy about it either. Perhaps they don't like Google beating them to the punch, as Google Chrome Frame is an excellent Trojan-Horse for Google's Chrome browser. Not to mention, it builds name recognition for Google's Chrome OS coming in the near future.

Next stop, Google Chrome OS Frame for IE6?
