Analysts Weigh In on Chrome Frame
"Technologies like Flash, Silverlight and JavaFX, for all their great features or abilities, already provide the same level of confusability about what exactly is rendering a Web page or executing an application, and what exactly are the security or privacy implications. For example, is there any contract between all these plug-ins to respect a user's privacy settings? Ultimately this is an issue that can only be resolved by better definition and adherence to standards. I am afraid the plug-in wars will get worse before they get better. ... To some extent a vision of the messy world with browsers inside browsers might be exactly what might push these vendors to the standard table with more passion."
However, Shaver has more personal concerns about what Chrome Frame means as well. Though Google has only offered the plug-in for IE, Shaver told Computer World he is concerned Google may create a Chrome Frame plug-in for Firefox.
