Google plugin to bring Chrome renderer to IE

Posted on Tuesday, September 22 2009 @ 21:18:05 CEST by

ARS Technica reports Google is working on an Internet Explorer plugin that will give the browser Chrome's HTML renderer and JavaScript engine. The move is mainly aimed at businesses, as some companies are tied to old versions of IE because they use proprietary web software that doesn't run on new browsers.
Google hopes that delivering Chrome's rendering engine in an IE plugin will provide a pragmatic compromise for users who can't upgrade. Web developers will be able to use an X-UA-Compatible meta tag to specify that their page should be displayed with the Chrome renderer plugin instead of using Internet Explorer's Trident engine. This approach will ensure that the Chrome engine is only used when it is supposed to and that it won't disrupt the browser's handling of legacy Web applications that require IE6 compatibility.

Installing a plugin is arguably less disruptive to users than migrating them to a different browser. It is unclear, however, if IT departments that refuse to upgrade their users to a better browser are going to be comfortable deploying new plugins.
