How does Ion compare to Google’s ChromeFrame plug-in for Internet Explorer?

Google’s Chrome Frame plug-in is an add-on for Internet Explorer that can be used to run web sites with the Chrome browser engine. It was designed so that customers running older versions of Internet Explorer (like IE6) can get the latest features from Google services like Gmail and Search. It does not improve or change IE’s compatibility with older web applications, nor does it offer any enterprise-level management features. In addition, in order to enable the Chrome engine to render a web site, the web site itself must be updated to instruct the Chrome Frame plug-in to run. Browsium Ion allows users of newer versions of Internet Explorer (IE8, IE9 or IE10) to get IE6 and IE7 compatibility when required in an easy-to-manage way and without requiring any change to the underlying web site.
