New Version Of Chrome Frame Doesn't Require Admin Rights To Install

If you're stuck on an office computer and forced to use Internet Explorer because your system is locked down, Google has your back. The new version of Chrome Frame brings the features of Google Chrome to IE and doesn't need administrative rights to your PC to install.

The new version runs a helper process in the background that sits quietly, consumes few system resources, and loads the Chrome Frame plugin into Internet Explorer every time you open it. Since you won't need admin rights to install Chrome Frame, anyone in virtually any IT environment, no matter how heavily locked down, can use it.

    work has already blocked the link to the site :(

    Only dev version available for now

    DET blocked running executables :(
    well i guess we're stuck with our slow and outdated IE8

    "Installation failed: Google Chrome Frame needs administrator privileges to install."

    Can someone please help me here? A website I used suggested getting chrome frame since it was not working at my work. I downloaded the non-admin version today, but am worried that IT will be able to see that I installed it? Will this be an issue? Google says to uninstall through settings, but I don't have admin rights to go in and uninstall. Anyone have suggestions?
