Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Google yesterday announced it has added several new security
features to Chrome, including two that were first popularized by
rival Microsoft in Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) last year.
"The newest "stable" build of Chrome -- Google's term for a
production-quality edition -- includes five security additions that
target Web developers who want to build more secure sites, said
Adam Barth, a software engineer on the Chrome team.
"Of the five features, two are notable because they're already
part of IE8, a browser many consider behind the times -- and one
that has trouble keeping up with competitors, such as Chrome and
Mozilla's Firefox, which are upgraded more frequently."
