Google has recently released it’s browser ‘Chrome‘ for beta testing. After playing around with it a bit, I liked the shiny look of the interface, but it just doesn’t stack up to Firefox, yet. I do worry about the implications of using a browser developed by Google, being that Google is known for keeping large amounts of data on it’s users. A ‘Google Browser’ when integrated with with Gmail and Google itself could provide the internet giant with a new level of understanding of it’s users.
Interestingly, within days of it’s release Chrome has already been exploited. A simple exploit allows files, including executables, to be downloaded without any prompt. Milw0rm has provided the proof-of-concept for such an exploit.
