I, like the myriad developers alluded to in the article, am thrilled that someone (Google or otherwise) found a way to potentially ease the pain of dealing with IE 6 when building websites and applications. However, I had to laugh at the 'newsworthiness' of this article. Really, Microsoft is against installing a 3rd party plugin that will improve the most craptacular 'modern' browser ever? I'm shocked :)!
One last thing ... I just have to call out this quote from the Microsoft spokesperson: "[Installing Google Chrome Frame] is not a risk we would recommend our friends and families take."
I find this particularly amusing because, installing or using IE, plugins or no, is not a risk I would recommend my own family and friends take.
