So this is how Microsoft responds to Google making Internet Explorer better with Google Chrome Frame: vague mumblings about security. Says a Microsoft spokesperson:
“Given the security issues with plugins in general and Google Chrome in particular, Google Chrome Frame running as a plugin has doubled the attach area for malware and malicious scripts. This is not a risk we would recommend our friends and families take.”
Love how he sticks in your family to tug at your heartstrings. Good luck making people believe such FUD. Chrome was the only browser left standing after a recent hacking contest. If anything, Chrome is more secure than IE.
Even to people who don’t follow browser hacking contests, Google is the most trusted brand in America. It’ll take a lot more than Microsoft’s blatantly anticompetitive mumblings about security to break that trust.
