Big news: Chrome Frame is now stable and out of beta!
Today, we’re very happy to take the Beta tag off of Google Chrome Frame and promote it to the Stable channel. This stable channel release provides our most polished version of Google Chrome Frame to date, allowing users to access modern web technologies like HTML5 on legacy browsers. You now can download the stable version of Google Chrome Frame and users of the Beta will be automatically updated to it in the days ahead. If you’re an IT administrator, we’ve also posted an MSI installer for deploying Google Chrome Frame in your network.
Chrome Frame is now much faster and stable. It’s extremely simple to have a site use Chrome Frame:
- <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1">
For the next step the Chrome Frame team is focusing on making start-up speed even faster and removing the need for administrator rights when installing the plug-in.
Congrats to the Chrome Frame team!
