Google Chrome’s First Bug

The first vulnerability of Google’s new browser has been announced and fixed. The bug is a buffer overflow when the user tries to save a web page containing a very long title tag. Now I’m sure it’s because of all the attention the browser is getting that this vulnerability was even discovered and more so that it was patched so quickly. The side affect of all the attention is more bugs and problems will probably arise but also that these will be patched and a excellent browser will emerge.

Side Note: I just can’t figure out why that decided to use Apple’s WebKit instead of Gecko for the engine. I have a problem with my computer at work with my mouse wheel scrolling not working correctly in Safari for Windows and the same problem occurs with Chrome.
