The best way to fix problems is to pay people to do it. This is really cool what google is doing, it seems all partys benefit from it.
That's odd. Why doesn't Google just pay it's own employees to find bugs. Or are they all too busy playing foosball in the company lounge.
Bug hunters won't sleep with this challenge, that is a good award. Freejet nice question :) but i think those aren't easy bugs to find.more people more chances :)
Maybe people who don't have anything to do with the actual development of Chrome have a whole new or different perspective when it comes to analyzing it's weaknesses?
It seems to be a good way to look for mistakes, and the fact that Google pays people to find the flaws is cool.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I have to agree. Having it's employees do it would be good but the fact that they're letting us find the bugs and they're paying us cold-hard cash for it is just plain awesome. Mozilla does do the same thing as them but who gives away cash for finding bugs?
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
It ends up being cheaper for them than extra full-time employees anyway. It's really a win-win.
I bought a car the other day,The engine smoked, the brakes gave way.The dealer said, "Hey, that's OK",You may have won the lotto, "Yay!"The maker called and said he'll pay,Cuz you just found some flaws, they say.Safety, security, be that as it may.Things aren't designed to be held sway.
