IE Tab

Since some Web pages only work with Internet Explorer, the Chrome IE Tab extension allows you to run IE from within a tab in Chrome so you can display them without leaving Chrome. You can configure the extension to do so automatically for URLs you specify. On a related note, this is somewhat along the lines of Google Chrome Frame. Back in September, the Google Chrome team thumbed its nose at Microsoft by introducing a feature in Chrome called Frame which lets IE users substitute Chrome's rendering engine in IE. IE Tab lets you use Chrome to run IE. Either way, users win, as they gain browser choice, even if they use apps that require IE.
