U4-193 - Feature Request: Add meta tag to enable use of Chrome Frame in IE

Created by Sebastiaan Janssen 16 Aug 2012, 06:44:12 Updated by Lee Kelleher 23 Aug 2012, 11:51:54

Hey, Could you add the following meta tag to the /umbraco/umbraco.aspx tag to enable people to use the CMS with Google's Chrome Frame in IE?

See here for details.... http://code.google.com/chrome/chromeframe/

We've advised some of our clients to install Chrome Frame in IE as it resolves several IE specific issues they were seeing. We had to use the meta tag above to get it to work but if you add this by default other people will get the benefits.

Thanks, Pat

Are there any downsides to including this META tag in back-office pages? (I can't think of any myself) +1 vote from me!

For the backoffice, I don't mind at all! There was an earlier suggestion to always output it in the frontend and that's a definite no.

@Seb - Does this need to be added to the roadmap? If so, which version?

@Lee Just checking: if Chrome Frame is NOT installed, IE users will not see the difference, right? They won't get a redirect to install it or anything? If so, then it can go into 4.9.0

Lee Kelleher 23 Aug 2012, 10:50:46

@Seb - Without Chrome Frame installed, IE will treat it as a custom META tag, no redirects/installs. Ref: [Google's FAQ|http://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/chrome-frame-getting-started/chrome-frame-faq#TOC-If-I-install-Google-Chrome-Frame-will-it-break-any-websites-I-use-]

Perfect, 4.9.0 it is!
