Chrome Frame could change the game for online trading

28 October 2010  |  4686 views  |  0

Google recently announced that Chrome Frame is out of beta.

If you're not aware of Chrome Frame, it's a lightweight plugin for Internet Explorer that allows selected websites/apps to run in the Google Chrome engine inside IE. In a sense it's a plugin just like Flash, Silverlight or Java. But instead of a proprietary environment, it gives you the open-standard HTML5 web with blazing performance -- in your old browser. In other words, it makes IE behave like Chrome.

For users in large institutions who have difficulty upgrading their browser, it is a potentially compelling proposition.

It's being suggested that this could change the game for single-dealer platforms. At least one global tier-1 bank is already rolling out Chrome Frame internally to allow it deploy high-performance web apps immediately without having to upgrade all the older browsers.

HTML5 momentum for online trading apps is building very fast.
