"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."
