1. How do I know I am using Google Chrome Frame?

When browsing a web page, right-click anywhere within the page - except in areas of Web Access that override the default web browser right-click menu. When the right-click menu appears the last option will display About Google Chrome Frame... if it is in use on that page.

2. Tell me does Google Chrome Frame autoupdate?

By default, yes. Google Chrome Frame uses the Google Update automatic updating system to automatically pull down and install all the latest security patches and fixes.

3. Explain Google Chrome Frame is installed but now Internet Explorer crashes. Can this be caused by other plug-ins I have installed?

Yes, it can. There are a few third-party plug-ins that are known to interact incorrectly with Google Chrome Frame and may cause crashes.

Plug-ins known to crash in this way include Askbar, mgToolbarIE, SweetIM Toolbar, gbieh.dll, and G-Buster Browser Defense and EMBASSY Trust Suite (wxvault.dll).

The workaround is to disable the plug-in using the Manage AddOn menu in Internet Explorer or to uninstall the crashing product .

4. Explain which document MIME types will Google Chrome Frame look in for the meta tag?

Google Chrome Frame looks only in documents with a text/html MIME type for the meta tag that causes it to activate. If you wish to activate Google Chrome Frame for other MIME types, use the X-UA-Compatible HTTP response header.

5. Tell me is Google Chrome Frame open-source?

Google Chrome Frame is built from open source code in the Chromium project just like Google Chrome.

6. Explain how to disable built-in Flash or PDF in Google Chrome Frame?

Launch Internet Explorer and navigate to the URL gcf:about:plugins. Find the built-in Flash or PDF plug-in and click Disable.

Enterprise administrators can also disable the plug-ins via Group Policy.

7. How to uninstall Google Chrome Frame?

Users can use the standard Add or Remove Programs tool in the Windows Control Panel (called Programs and Features in Windows Vista and Windows 7) to uninstall Google Chrome Frame. Uninstalling does not affect the installed status of the Google Chrome browser.

8. Can you please explain does Google Chrome Frame work on 64-bit IE?

Currently, 64-bit versions of IE are not supported. Estimates put the percentage of 64-bit IE users at less than one percent of all IE sessions. It's worth pointing out that 32-bit IE is the default on 64-bit Windows 7
