Google has been paying a huge amount of money for finding bugs and exploiting the browser and their security team is very proud about their achievements. Members of Google Chrome security team, Chris Evans and Justin Schuh mentioned- “While we’re proud of Chrome’s leading track record in past competitions, the fact is that not receiving exploits means that it’s harder to learn and improve“. The whole team has been trying their bests to keep the browser’s security updated.
