Google Chrome Frame boosts IE speed to Chrome levels

Google Chrome Frame boosts IE speed up to Chrome levels
http://blogs.zdnet.com/hardware/?p=5580

A reader comments under thsi article :
"Microsoft may even be a little happy about this
    Google has developed a solution that:
    1. allows IE to maintain support for existing, IE-dependent apps/sites.
    2. brings all versions of IE into full compliance with the latest web standards.
    3. brings blazing-fast JavaScript performance to all versions of IE.
    4. brings the latest HTML5 functionality, to all versions of IE.
    5. reduces web development & support costs (no more IE "customizations").
    6. reduces/eliminates the need for Flash/Silverlight (devs can use HTML5 audio/video/canvas, etc.).
    7. reduces/eliminates the need for users to change to another browser, to get these enhancements.
    8. reduces the need/urgency for Microsoft to do it.

    I think Google deserves a lot of credit, for figuring this out."

But: MS warns that Chrome Frame makes IE more insecure/trojan-susceptible ?

Has Google done the impossible(bested MS where others like Netscape/Mozilla couldn't) ?

I haven't tried it but one of the comment underneath said:

IE-specific features and extensions won't work == user confusion
IE features like accelerators and webslices don't work when Chrome Frame is rendering the page. Likewise, IE extensions that interact with the page content (like spellcheckers, highlight bars, form fillers, etc) will not work with Chrome Frame. These problems will confuse the majority of users, especially if there is no obvious visual clue that Chrome Frame is displaying the page.
