"Accessing sites using Google Chrome Frame brings Google Chrome’s security features to Internet Explorer users," said a Google spokesman today. "It provides strong phishing and malware protection, absent in IE6, robust sandboxing technology [in IE6 and on Windows XP], and defenses from emerging online threats that are available in days rather than months."
Looks like the intended market for Chrome Frame is IE6 on XP. If that was the case then why allow the installer to work if IE7 or IE8 is installed on a system. Sure there is no reason for it to not work on other versions of Windows and different versions of the browser.
Sounds like Google is trying to say that Internet Explorer 6.0 is more secure with Google Chrome Frame installed than the native IE6. Interesting statement that thus far does not appear to have any real world data to backup the statement. If Chrome is still using the older Safari SDK not sure how one can even make a comparable security statement.
