Introducing Google Chrome Frame
,----[ Quote ]
| Today, we're releasing an early version of Google Chrome
| Frame, an open source plug-in that brings HTML5 and other open
| web technologies to Internet Explorer.
| We're building Google Chrome Frame to help web developers
| deliver faster, richer applications like Google Wave. Recent
| have enabled web applications to do things that could
| previously only be done by desktop software. One challenge
| developers face in using these new technologies is that they
| are not yet supported by Internet Explorer. Developers can't
| afford to ignore IE â most people use some version of IE â so
| they end up spending lots of time implementing work-arounds or
| limiting the functionality of their apps.

| Subject: Office rendering
| One thing we have got to change is our strategy -- allowing Office
| documents to be rendered very well by OTHER PEOPLES BROWSERS is one of the
| most destructive things we could do to the company.
| We have to stop putting any effort into this and make sure that Office
| documents very well depends on PROPRIETARY IE capabilities.
| Anything else is suicide for our platform. This is a case where Office has
| to to destroy Windows.
