Chrome Frame Is No More

Last hope of Internet Explorer users, Chrome Frame, ceases support and updates in January 2014.

For those of you that don’t know what is Chrome Frame, it’s made by Google as a free plug-in for Internet Explorer. It provides alternative rendering engine for Internet Explorer users and enables them more advanced experience along with better speed.

Google claims most people are now using modern browsers that support the latest web technologies and that usage of legacy browsers is declining significantly, newer browsers stay up to date automatically, which means the leading edge has become mainstream. Due to this change in recent years, they feel there is no need to prolong life of old Internet Explorers.

No need for Chrome Frame meta tag anymore:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1" />

What Google suggests now is to promote modern web browsers instead of pointing IE users to Chrome Frame.
