The great thing about being a freelance exterminator for Google is that there aren't any messy chemicals to inhale. That, and you get paid for breaking things, and in some cases, paid handsomely. The recently released Chrome 12 browser, for example, netted bug hunters nearly $10,000 in award money for discovering various exploits, including one that was worth $3,133.70.
There's a new version of Google's Chrome browser available in the beta channel. Chrome 12 beta includes a handful of upgrades and enhancements, such as "snazzier" graphics, hardware accelerated 3D CSS, security and privacy upgrades, improved screen reader support, and better Flash integration. Also new to Chrome 12, Google stripped the browser of its Gears plug-in as it shifts focus to HTML5.
