Google has released an early version of Google Chrome Frame, which is an open source plug-in that brings HTML5 and other open web technologies to Internet Explorer.
The following is its description as provided on The Chromium Blog: Introducing Google Chrome Frame. Introductory video is also available on the said page.
To start using Google Chrome Frame, all developers need to do is to add a single tag:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1">
When Google Chrome Frame detects this tag it switches automatically to using Google Chrome's speedy WebKit-based rendering engine. It's that easy. For users, installing Google Chrome Frame will allow them to seamlessly enjoy modern web apps at blazing speeds, through the familiar interface of the version of IE that they are currently using.

I've tried Chrome but somehow do not like it. Prefer Opera instead But thanks for the heads up, bro.

Adding to the original post, after installing the Chrome Frame plugin, you can invoke the Chrome engine on IE by prefixing cf: in the beginning of the URL in the address bar. The page will be rendered as if in Chrome browser.
