Google Brings Chrome Rendering Engine to Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8In an effort to help developers build rich web apps, Google has released a plug-in for Internet Explorer.

Here’s what Google says about it:

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.”

Usage is fairly simple as well, developers just have to add a single tag to web page which detects whether IE has Frame plug-in installed or not.
