Google Rescues IE 8?

As an IE 8 user, I'm relatively happy, but I have noticed slow page loads which made me question my cable Internet connection. According to current wisdom, my connection is just fine -- it's IE 8 that's slow.

Google has what sounds like a neat solution: Web developers can invoke the Chrome engine from within IE 8, dramatically speeding performances. The Google Chrome Frame is in beta, but early reports are promising. And all developers have to do is add one simple tag.

Microsoft isn't entirely happy and warns of possible security flaws. And after spending so much time making IE 8 secure, Redmond may have a point.
