Internet explorer 8 with GCF

In the html response a meta tag is used which activates the google chrome frame (GCF) in Internet Explorer.

In \atlassian-jira-5.1-standalone\atlassian-jira\includes\decorators\aui-layout\head-common.jsp :

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge;chrome=1" />

We want to disable GCF with JIRA because of some strange effects like a popup saying "Confirm Navigation" with buttons "Leave this page" or "Stay on this page" when you want to add comment.

Can I just simply remove this meta tag line out of this jsp?
What are the implications?

No implications, it will work fine without GCF.

However we use GCF as a matter of course and I have not seen these problems in jira.

There are problems in Confluence though with editing office documents, where the plugin says it only supports IE8 and FF", but the user thinks they're using IE8.
