That are "hotfixes" that you must download manually to install them and they suppose to solve different issues, some of them are not released officially thats why "unofficial". But this is ont topic of this topic, also dont think talking about this hotfixes is allowed on this forum.

Shame, I would've liked to try them.

Back on topic, maybe I'll try this out on IE 8 x64.

EDIT: Never mind, looks like it doesn't support 64-bit browsers (I can't watch anything in IEx64).

Just an FYI guys, if you end up using Google Chrome, then use of the Accelerators is disabled (when you highlight stuff and right-click, the menu no longer gives you the option to use Accelerators). However, I think the trade off is worth it.

Are there any other downfalls to using this expect the accelerators?I mean if I do the system registry where it runs all the time can it harm my computer? Will it affect its security or anything like that? Thanks

Well thing is noone knows Fact is there are exploits for IE, there are exploits for Chrome. However i doubt those "known" ones are working in IE with Chrome engine. Im sure there could be some new exploit because of ChromeFrame, however real question is, will people bother to find it... Biggest reason why "it seems" there is so many bugs in IE is just because most people are using it and more exploits are found, not because it would actualy have more security holes. So my thinking is that with using ChromeFrame, until every 2nd person will use it, we are pretty safe, since noone will bother to search for exploits.

Ok thanks. I will try it. So I need to just click that attached file you have listed and follow those steps and it should run every time for every window? Will shutting down the pc or anything like that disable it or will it always run like that? How would I ever take it off? Sorry for all the questions. Im just trying to figure it out before I decide to try it. Thanks

Actually if you look at the security tracking sights and the diff files of the other browsers there are lots of potential exploits (buffer overflows and script holes and oh ghod the plugin bugs) fixed with every other release of FF as well as the other browsers.

The REAL difference is that an exploit in FF is almost never front page news like IE is. It's found, fixed and almost never makes news even on /. WHich is a shame for the FF users as most of them that I talk too seem to think that FF is compeltely impervious and once installed never needs to be updated 9.9

Updates to OSX and Safari have included up to as many as 10 exploit fixes in a single push back when I was tracking that OS. But you certainly would never hear about that anywhere but the fine print...

I clicked the attachment you listed for forcing ie to always run in google frame and it opens a window I click run and it loads and then nothing happens. I do not think it worked because I can still find accelerators and stuff like that. How do i get it to work or how do I know if it did? It does not seem any faster.

You might need to run it "as admin", otherwise to check if plugin works just write cf: in front of some address and it should open it with chromeframe.
