Google Chrome Frame released for IE6 Users

23-09-2009-13-49-09Google is not ready to leave IE6 users without tasting the upcoming service “Google Wave”. Google Wave is expected to be released in next week. In Chromium Blog, the Development Team made an announcement yesterday about the Open Source – Google Chrome Frame plugin, that enables Internet Explorer users to avail HTML5 and other Open web technologies.

With Google Chrome Frame, developers can now take advantage of the latest open web technologies, even in Internet Explorer. From a faster Javascript engine, to support for current web technologies like HTML5’s offline capabilities and <canvas>, to modern CSS/Layout handling, Google Chrome Frame enables these features within IE with no additional coding or testing for different browser versions.

To start using Google Chrome Frame, all developers need to do is to add a single tag:

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”chrome=1″>


I Registered Google Wave for one of my domain that uses google apps and waiting for an email from them. Currently Google Apps users can expect an invitation it seems. So give a try and let us know your experience as comments.

WordPress users, may also use the plugin from WordPress Plugin DB to add the meta tag in the header. However, you can go for manual modification of your header.php file if you know how to do it.
