Nine researchers were paid a total of $14,000 in bug bounties for bringing the Chrome bugs to Google’s attention. The company then promptly patched them last Monday.
Pwn2Own, an annual hacking contest that takes place at the CanSecWest security conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, was most likely the trigger for the updates, for Google fixed security flaws a week before last year’s Pwn2Own contest as well.
It’s the 1st of March already, so let’s dive into February market share data.
With the release of Internet Explorer 9 RC, Microsoft has taken some share back, up from 56.00% to 56.77% (0.77 point increase).
While everyone awaits the final version of Firefox 4, an open source web browser continues the downtrend, from 22.75% to 21.74% (1.01 point decrease).

Back in April of 2010, Apple has announced a new version of WebKit framework which is essentially called WebKit2
Well, it looks like the upcoming Mac OS X Lion release will feature an improved Safari web browser that finally utilizes Webkit2.
One of the main framework goals is to utilize a split process model, so the web content would be placed into a separate process. As a result, bad plugin, tab etc. won’t crash the whole web browser.
This behavior is very similar to Chrome’s; however, as split process module is directly integrated into WebKit2 framework, other clients will be able to use it as well.
Good news, the team behind Web Inspector has pushed a new version that improves CSS editing capabilities.
The Web Inspector will now show all the declared properties, even the ones that are not understood by a web browser.
Color property values can now be shown exactly as they written in an inline style.
It now uses two separate fields for property name and value.
And best of them all: the history of style sheet. This means that you can now track all the CSS changes that were made during editing.
Overall, it’s a nice update and we hope to see CSS tracking implemented into other dev tools as well.

A lot of news about Google Chrome lately, no? This time it’s about how the next iteration of Google Chrome will implement a feature that only Internet Explorer 9 has so far and that feature is: dropping the address bar.
Despite being one of the most minimalist web browsers already, the next Google Chrome version will save even more screen space.
Don’t worry, the address bar will reappear when users move the cursor over the spot where the address bar normally is. It is a feature that only the beta of Internet Explorer 9 currently boasts but Google seemingly intends to take it a step further.
