    • Sounds right to me...

      20 bug fixes, not one resulting in a zero day critical exploit.

  • Errr.....

    So Chrome 20 comes out. Wait maybe 2 weeks and an update to Chrome 20 will be out fixing the vulnerabilities in this one. And a couple of weeks lateranother update to fix the previous version.
    Compare that with the other browsers out there. IE had 4 vulnerab ilities but in 2 months. I think the previous update had something like 3 bugs - also after 2 months. [Chrome probably had 3-4 releases in 2 months totaling propbably 60-70 bugs].
    Firefox? Not really much bugs lately. Mostly stability issues.
    Safari? Opera? Who uses them?
    Don't believe me? See http://www.gfi.com/blog/research-web-browser-war-security-battle-in-2011/ Note the first graph. Note the test that says "For example, Microsoft only had 244 vulnerabilities reported in 2011 in all their products!" while Chrome on its own had 275!

    • Note

      the last paragraph of your link:
      While there are some differences in the number of vulnerabilities and exploits for each browser the fact is that there is no such thing as a web browser that???s completely secure and therefore, patching them is one way to lower the risk of a security breach as much as possible.

  • Annoying

    Is it a bug that every single page shows you a msg saying ??? This page has insecure content. Don???t load or Load anyway??? ???
    Its kind of annoying.
