IE compatibility meta tag

I just read an article that mentioned this meta tag in passing. Its example contained an addition (chrome=1) that I had not seen before and I couldn’t find an explanation of what it does. I know about the meta tag, but what does that bit do?

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">

If user has Chrome Frame addon installed, it forces IE to enable it for that page. That addon adds Google Chrome rendering engine to IE, so its basically Google Chrome with IE interface.

Its available here: Google Chrome Frame - Google Code

Ah, OK. Thanks.
