Google Competition Is A Brilliant Public Relations Maneuver
A total of $2 million will be available to win, broken into categories detailing types of bugs revealed.
Not only does this generate great press for the search giant, it also rewards people for uncovering Google's mistakes. Now, instead of a story emerging about Chrome vulnerabilities, the story will be about someone cashing in on the competition.
This is an all-around great move by Google - they've simultaneously gained positive press today, while ensuring that any future setbacks with Chrome will be framed as intelligent progress - as it should.
