It is great of Google to pay bug hunters to make their browser the most secure one on the market.
Personally I still prefer Firefox primarily and now that they are making it more efficient in its memory use it is even better.
Unfortunately where I work we are forced to use IE 8. It certainly works but I don't really like it too much.
"I'm using Chrome and I have never looked back, although I use Firefox once in while for Web Multi tasking. Its a great approach by Google to give programmers an incentive for the bug finds, truly make the browser safer and the user experience better. "
"Out of subject, I would love for Adobe to follow Google's footstep, and offer even more money for people to find Adobe Flash bugs. I cant go by a day without my Browser crashing once or twice because of Flash, and Only Flash."
Chrome is meh. If they ever made a 64-bit version then sure, I might jump on the bandwagon but as it is; no comprende Chrome.
Well it's nice that Google is offering a cash payment to those finding bugs but I digress with it making it a safe browser. I mean we have people reporting bugs and requesting features because it's open source. What happens if these bug fixers go towards Chrome instead of Firefox; we could have a buggy browser instead of one that's mostly flaw free.
Now for the Adobe thing. Luckily I have not had many browser crashes, and I'm using the preview version of Flash (Flash 11 64-bit); and if I did have a browser crash, no problem; just reload the tab. Seriously, the only way Flash could get better is if they made the entirety of it open source; then and only then will I get a non-preview version of Flash for my 64-bit PC.

I wish that I was more IT orientated & had the spare time to search, or did they find these bugs by haphazard means & that is all it was by.
its nice to see the care given. although i too prefer ff for the memory thing

well thats nice of them, but they still aren't for me. Don't like the simple look they have so :P, they should pay me to use it now xD
It's great move from Google to pay the bug hunters to make it much more secure, but i still prefer Firefox over Chrome. It is much more comfortable for multi tasking, and it's secure enough :)
Nice to see a bit of a bounty and cash reward ..pretty much use Firefox latest and the Nightly build.Came across Comodo Dragon Browser which is sort of a tweener' between Chrome and Firefox .it's free and bit a bit of a hybrid..It almost like having Chrome underneath and Firefox on top.It may be more secure than FF underneath.anyways been a fan of the standalone Comodo firewall for some time.Since the FF Nightly does not support flash the Dragon does and I like it bit more than Chrome ..started using it over the weekend.>> def worth checking out .
Edit :: thought this post that was similar was entered earlier today in this thread and just re-posted from the forum
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
I use FF most of the time. (IE Sucks BIG TIME) I also use Chrome occasionally if I think about it. Would like to be earning some of this good cash that they're giving out, but don't have the time to deal with finding the bugs.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I recently switched to chome because firefox was crashing and freezing a lot. I wish I was smart enough to look through code and find bugs to make Chrome better. But this is just showing how serious Google is.
