Speed Up IE8 With Google Plug-In

Computerworld has run tests on Internet Explorer, version 8, after the addition of the Chrome Frame plug-in available from Google. The test results demonstrate that IE8, with Chrome Frame, runs almost ten times faster than IE8 without Chrome Frame. IE8 handles JavaScript 9.6 faster with the addition of the plug-in.

To test and validate its results, Computerworld used the SunSpider Javascript program, running it three times on IE8 standing alone, and three times with the addition of the ChromeFrame plug-in. The scores were averaged to achieve the published results. The average score with the addition of ChromeFrame was equal to the scores of Google’s Chrome browser, proving that ChromeFrame can optimize any Internet Explorer program to the speed and efficiency of the actual Chrome browser.
