Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-2399) Integrate "Chrome Frame" into cordova-windows (adds WinXP support + webkit/v8 option instead of IE)

Jared commented on CB-2399:

Jesse: At the suggestion of Shazron, I've added this to JIRA. There isn't currently a generic
"Windows" component in JIRA or I would have added it there.

> Use Google's "Chrome Frame" plugin as a way to get support for pre-IE9 based windows
systems. Although Chrome Frame won't work out of the box with embedded webviews according
to Frame's FAQ, it is open-source and under a BSD-style license.
> Chrome Frame feels like it would be a rather clever way to get win32 support for setups
that don't have IE9 or greater (or for web developers that don't want to rely on the trident
rendering engine at all and instead develop against the latest webkit/v8 setup).
> Of course keeping app distributables small is also important since we wouldn't want to
distribute a 30MB+ dependency with each app. To solve this, the integration could be designed
such that the Chrome Frame framework is downloaded and installed silently in the background
and only when needed/requested by the app developer.
> Using Chrome Frame also has the benefit of being distributed and maintained by Google
so its in good hands.
