    Microsoft plays the security card in response to Google's Chrome Frame.

    I was doubtful that Microsoft execs would have anything to say about Google’s introduction this week of a plug-in that allows users to run the Google Chrome browser inside Internet Explorer.
    But I was wrong.

    Wow. Did you read MSs response?
    Really?
    Reaaaaally?

    *sigh*

    This is parrt of why they bug me sometimes. I love their OS, but their browser can go die. They don't seem to know how to secure one properly.

    I don't see any point in MS moaning about the Chrome plugin, it only increases the speed of IE8. Even EU(People) will welcome IE8 with both hands.

    This feels like a troll post.

    If you are going to say something like this, back it up.

    For example: "I hate IE because its slow and clunky imo. But I also don't like it because I don't think it looks good."

    Even if you don't like it because it does not look good, just say it. Give your reasons. Otherwise it is just trolling, of which I have very little tolerance.
