Google Chrome no bugsAs Google Chrome climbs out of obscurity in the browser market and expands into a light-weight but fully functional OS, security seems to have become a top of mind issue over at chromium headquarters.

In the Chromium Blog, Chris Evans of Chrome Security announced a cash for bugs initiative, paying between 500 and 1337 USD depending on the severity for any previously undiscovered flaw.  I am glad to see Google encouraging the community at large to participate in hardening my current browser of choice.  As Chris points out, Mozilla was one of the first to embark on this type of program, but I am happy to see Chrome following suit.  Me and my online transactions appreciate it.

Hmm.  Maybe I should roll-up the sleeves and  invoke the  ”I’m gonna write me a minivan” approach and get the driveway cleared for the armored cash trucks.

But seriously, if you’re interested in helping out and getting a small reward for your efforts, visit the Chromium Security project.

    Fantastic! Looks like testers the world over would welcome this move. With the launch of CMST in the market, there is a defined career path available for IT professionals as they can first get certified as a CSTE (Practitioner level) and can then upgrade to CMST (Manager level) after gaining about 8 years of exp in Testing
