The Chrome Frame is now accessible to all users - i.e. users now need "not" to have administrative privileges on their machines to install Chrome Frame, the Chromim team just announced.

"Non-Admin Chrome Frame runs a helper process at startup to assist with loading the Chrome Frame plug-in into Internet Explorer. The helper process is designed to consume almost no system resources while running. Once installed, non-admin users will have the same no-friction experience that admin users of Chrome Frame have today," the team explains.

Google say they're are working to bring Non-Admin Chrome Frame up to the beta and stable channels over the coming weeks.

You can try it yourself by installing the new non-admin version of Chrome Frame here. This is now available in our developer channel and is coming to stable channel very soon.
