Google Chrome Frame Now in Beta
Extend the reach of HTML5 to Legacy browsers.
The Chromium Project, Google's open source project that created the Chrome browser, has released the Chrome Frame beta from the developer preview. The Chrome Frame is a free plug-in for Internet Explorer that brings the full HTML5 experience to legacy versions of IE (IE 6, 7 and 8, to be exact).
In addition to providing HTML5 support, the Chrome Frame also improves IE features such as cache clearing, cookie blocking and InPrivate browsing.
Enabling website support for the plug-in is accomplished by added the following line of code to the top of a page:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1">
To enable this header site-wide for a site served with Apache, confirm that mod_setenvif and mod_headers are enabled and add the following code to the configuration file:
BrowserMatch chromeframe gcf
Header append X-UA-Compatible "chrome=1" env=gcf
Sites that have already adopted Chrome Frame support include Meebo and WordPress, as well as Google sites YouTube, Orkut and Wave.
Chrome Frame can be downloaded at google.com/chromeframe/.
ThanksI was not at all a fan of the Google Chrome. Many browsers I have used and I found that Firefox was the best suited for me. But very lately I had a recommendation from one of my friends about Chrome. I used it and was astonished by the speed and light weight the browser was. I'm not that much of a developer. but my friend his, I will forward him this page so that it would help him. Thanks Don @ http://www.gumball-machine.com
