What better way to test security than to have hackers try to break it?
During a contest at the CanSecWest event, security researchers competed to exploit vulnerabilities in web browsers. Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer were all successfully compromised, but Chrome was able to withstand the first day of the competition.
I think what’s most interesting is that Safari went down first, in 10 seconds. Sure, it might be fast and pretty, but wow.
Now I just need Chrome to have AdBlock and maybe Firebug and I’ll be golden.
