Google Chrome Frame Plugin for WordPress

Google Chrome Frame — the Beginning of the End of IE Tyranny?

Google just introduced a new tactic in the browser wars, and this one’s juicy. It’s called Google Chrome Frame.

What it does is it makes Internet Explorer render websites using Google Chrome in a frame. That means that IE can have HTML 5 compatibility and all the other WebKit goodness. The catch? Google Chrome Frame will only activate if webmasters ask it to by adding a meta tag. So I created a plugin that does just that.

Hopefully, GCF will start to shift users from rendering sites in IE 6/7/8 to Google Chrome.

Version 2.0 includes option to add the Google Chrome Frame javascript installation prompt code.

No, this makes it so that Internet Explorer (IE) users are prompted to download the Chrome plugin for their browser so that IE renders pages correctly. This doesn’t fix how Chrome displays websites. FYI, Chrome should display websites correctly 99.999% of the time. It’s often the code’s fault if it isn’t looking right.
