Windows 7: Network security concerns cause browser spat between G

Network security concerns cause browser spat between G

Google’s recent release of a plug-in for Microsoft’s ubiquitous Internet Explorer browser has fueled an acrimonious exchange between the
two computer giants. Google’s Chrome Frame, a product that more or less transforms Internet Explorer into Google’s Chrome browser, immediately produced a condemnatory release from Microsoft, which claimed that Chrome Frame made Internet Explorer less secure, and chastised Google for releasing the product.

Google almost immediately fired back, implying that Microsoft was being deceptive toward its customers by painting Google’s up-to-date Chrome browser as less safe than antiquated versions of Internet Explorer in widespread enterprise use, citing Chrome’s modern malware protection and anti-phishing features. Google also pointedly excluded Internet Explorer from a list of browsers it says are modern and standards-compliant.

Google’s browser, despite critical acclaim, has not managed to capture a significant slice of the enterprise market, over which Microsoft maintains a stranglehold. Experts say that Chrome Frame is part of a Google strategy to break that stranglehold by demonstrating Chrome’s high-speed performance and advanced functionality without forcing users to make a browser switch.

Awesome. Google has some balls.

And for the record, Chrome has sandboxing and IE doesn't. It also uses modern worldwide standards, not MS -wide standards.

Network concerns.
I pulled up Resmon this morning and was quite surprised at my network activity. This is what I get at idle, with IE closed and no updates running. Is this normal?
