Google has just launched a new program aimed at improving security for its new web browser, Google Chrome. Developers who find a bug in either Chrome or Chromium, the open source codebase used as the testing grounds for Chrome, will receive anywhere from $500 to $1337 for reporting the issue. The amount of the reward will vary depending on the severity of the security hole discovered, says Google. Those bugs deemed "particularly severe or particularly clever" will receive the higher amount.

Didn't Mozilla do this a couple of years ago?
Still good idea, and love Google's choice of top prize :D

There is an announcement with Q&A in The Chromium Blog.
blog.chromium.org/2010/01/enco ...

It acknowledges Mozilla's bounty program.

"Such a concept is not new; we'd like to give serious kudos to the folks at Mozilla for their long-running and successful vulnerability reward program."

It also links to a Google corporate security page with acknowledgements.

New chrome release out today (5.0.307.1 dev). It's slighly redesigned, with new safety feature called Content settings (you can find it under ALT+F>Options>Advanced)

Here you are:

Windows XP version – only change, address bar separator help to hide unnecessary extensions, and I think that default color are different.

Windows 7 version – themed version looks slighly different. Also it's supporting new Windows 7 taskbar features (your favs, lately closed, new window and new incognito window)

Mac OSX version – here you can see the biggest progress. Default theme looks different, but there is no address bar separator. Also included in this version: bookmarks manager, bookmarks sync and extensions.

I think that's all, but remember it's dev channel and here everything can happen.

Closer to Chrome OS?

I think that I found new Chrome feature, when you close pinned tab, it stays as a favicon left from "Add new tab" button. Tested on Windows XP, on Mac doesn't work.
