Latest Chrome Beta Drops OpenSSLSay hello to BoringSSL.

After the recent Heartbleed bug paranoia, it looks like Google took a pretty significant step to minimize such risks in the future. According to the report, the search giant is replacing OpenSSL with its own BoringSSL (yes, they did call it like that) in an effort to streamline security patches and improve overall user security.

Google said that with over 70 security patches that were added onto OpenSSL, it become too convoluted to be implemented to Google Chrome, hence the switch to BoringSSL.
