Google last month launched a new open source project called Chrome Frame, a browser plugin that brings Chrome’s powerful HTML renderer and high-speed JavaScript engine to Microsoft’s browser. The plugin will allow Internet Explorer users to enjoy next-generation Web applications like Google Wave by providing critical performance improvements and strong support for emerging standards.

Despite the benefits that the plugin offers to end users and the Web development community, other browser vendors have some concerns about the implications. Mozilla and Microsoft have raised some valid questions about potential problems with Chrome Frame, but we’re still not convinced that the plugin is a net loss for the Web.
