Chrome Frame by Google: Turn your IE into Chrome!

163 google chrome frame Chrome Frame by Google: Turn your IE into Chrome!

Google brings into being its Chrome Frame: an open source plugin for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. The plugin that weights around 500 Kb can be installed on IE 6, 7, or 8 without any additional coding and allows IE to support HTML5 and other modern web technologies that Explorer just can’t handle at the moment. Despite of Internet Explorer is still being the most wide spread browser, the majority of its users are unhappy with it. Of course, speaking of web standards & technologies, in the latest versions of IE things started to get better, but it is still far behind the niche’s monsters: Opera, FireFox, Chrome, and Safari.

A new search engine won’t be a Google killer

By Emma Brem on August 9, 2009

The name is Blekko. Blekko will be a search engine. That’s basically all we know about a new project, that would probably attempt to become one more “Google slayer”. Too many other “killers” achieved nothing despite of being promoted as “the SE of the future” even before they were launched. This was the destiny of Guil, Wikia Search, SearchMe, and some others.

The new one, Blekko, wisely decided not to repeat the mistake of “selling ground on Mars” and decided not to communicate with press, bloggers, or any other media at all. Probably that would save the project from fiasco within 2 weeks after it will be launched.
