Deploy Google Chrome browser in Enterprises

Ever wondered where Microsoft and Google would co-exist and would work inter-dependently? Google Chrome Frame is the answer!  One of the problems and bottlenecks faced by users of enterprises while browsing revolve around downloading a software or view a particular file online. 

This is because it causes issues of security, bandwidth and maintenance.  More so, in IT organizations and corporates inspite of many software and tools available they have to stick with the traditional methods of browsing through Internet Explorer.

Google introduced Google Chrome Frame to solve this issue.

It is built for speed, security and the ability to run the most sophisticated web-based applications. The new capabilities in Chrome allow IT administrators to efficiently deploy and manage Chrome across their organizations. They’ve also made it possible for businesses to centrally deploy Chrome Frame to improve the performance of Internet Explorer.

Google Chrome Frame is an open source plug-in that brings Google Chrome’s open web technologies and speedy JavaScript engine to Internet Explorer. With Google Chrome Frame, you can:

Google Chrome is also available through an offline standalone MSI Installer and can be deployed using standard deployment tools used by Organizations and hence provides a seamless alternative.

It also has a set of Templates and User policy settings. Hence the IT administrator can also control the privacy and security settings while installation and thereafter. So it packs the elegance of Google Chrome for Web with the simple and common interface of Internet Explorer which is now provided as a Plug In. Hence for users who have older compatibility requirements for Web content which is supported by Internet Explorer also do not have to lose their share of the Pie.

This also allows organizations to cut back on costs involving software licensing and for web security because of the custom built security features. It also provides users access to productivity enhancing HTML5 applications.

Application support is available through Google Business apps website, phone and email along with ample documentation for deployment. Organizations such as Vanguard, Boise State University, and Procter & Gamble (and Google!) have already successfully deployed Chrome to thousands of users.

Microsoft is developing the next version of Internet Explorer i.e. IE 9 and its Beta version is available currently and it is expected to be release in the second quarter of 2011. It supports all the latest web technologies and Microsoft has developed a special JavaScript engine named as Chakra to speed up the rendering of JavaScript.
