I have rarely seen so much interest for an Internet Explorer dedicated plug-in!
While developers have been strafed twitter with re-tweets, technical questions and some guessed answer about Chrome Frame, Robert Nyman has already expressed his thoughts about Wave choice and latest Alex Russell idea.
Here few highlights:
No one will care
- Home users who have no idea what a web browser is, and will not install anything (or, in some cases, everything – different story… :-) )
- Company users with company IT restrictions where it doesn’t matter if it’s a web browser upgrade, new browser or “just” a plug-in – they’re not allowed to install anything.
When I first heard about Google Chrome Frame, I liked the idea and I know Alex Russell behind it is one of the smartest developers in the world. I am 100% convinced that this has been implemented in an optimal way, especially from a performance perspective, so not having to develop for any Internet Explorer rendering engine sounds like a god-send!
The effects of this
I feel that we have crossed a line …
To be honest, I think Robert has some good point there but for some reason, my web nervous system does hope he is so wrong!
