Engadget reported that the Netflix plug-in for Chrome OS, which is supposed to bring instant streaming to Chromebooks in a satisfactory way, is now v1.0.2 as found in beta channel release.
We reported the appearance of this Chromebook Netflix plug-in in June. Although this v1.0.2 still has no playback function, this version number makes me feel like the official stable version is coming very soon. I got the impression that the final product is just a few weeks away. We’ll see.

I had this experience before. In my company all computers have Internet Explorer as the only browser. It’s IE 5. Many web sites that are written with modern technologies could not function properly in this old browser. And since the right to install new apps is held in the hands of the IT guys, I had no way to get around.
Now Google announced Non-Admin Chrome Frame, a plug-in that brings HTML5 capabilities to older IE, which does not require admin rights to install. It runs a helper process at startup to help loading the Chrome plug-in into IE. This plug-in is now in developer channel but will soon be moving to stable channel.
