Use Google Chrome in Internet explorer with Google Frame

Use Google Chrome in Internet explorer with Google Frame


Google Chrome Frame is an early-stage open source plug-in that seamlessly brings Google Chrome’s open web technologies and speedy #JavaScript engine to Internet Explorer. With Google Chrome Frame, you can:

  • Start using open web technologies – like the HTML5 canvas tag – right away, even technologies that aren’t yet supported in Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8.
  • Take advantage of #JavaScript performance improvements to make your apps faster and more responsive.

What is even more clever is that thanks to a special embedded tags in your html body, you can propose to your visitor to install this plugin, and thus increase market share of Google chrome. That’s a direct hit at Microsoft domination plans 🙂 (we own the file format, and runtime environment)


<body> <script type="text/javascript"  src=""> </script>   <div id="placeholder"></div>  <script>  CFInstall.check({     node: "placeholder",     destination: ""   }); </script> </body>

Adding this tag in <head> section of your blog is for users running Internet Explorer with Google Chrome Frame installed. This will automatically render yours pages with Google Chrome Frame instead of IE.

 <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1">

After that, you can visit any site and render it with Google frame by appending cf: to any http:// url’s,


Personally I will stick to Firefox/Chrome/Opera and use them when it make sense.
