Google Chrome - Last Browser Standing

One day into the Pwn2Own hacking competition, and all 3 major browsers (IE, Firefox and Safari) have fallen down, leaving Google Chrome, with predicted 2% market share), standing on its own. Interesting notes are that Opera was not part of the competition, and the first one falling was, you bet, Safari! Later, the winning hacker “Nils” managed to gain control of the Safari, and hacked the other two browsers as well.

So is Google Chrome more secured, or less known to hackers? Well either way, it means it’s more secured for the time being at least.

    Small marketshare = very small profit for botnet masters & spammers. They’re not worth the try.

    MBH: Probably. But it’s also Google, it’ always lovely to take on a product from such a company :). Not to mention being the first in a competition.

    Should I be worried? I think not. :P

    MacaholiQ8: Yeah, I feel bad for you everytime I post about Google Chrome. By the way, my PC is dead so I’m using Mac and we’re on the same boat if that makes you feel better.

  • MacaholiQ8
