Google Offers Browser Security Handbook

Google recently published a Browser Security Handbook and given that they are now in the browser space it is worth a read.

It gives a good overview of how a browser works and then details security issues to be aware of, as well as some good advanced security issues. Perhaps if we were a little more aware of securing our browser we could avoid attracting those malware and other ghosts in the machine that reduce computer speed.

The section on CSS and javascript are worth a read if you have some tech background as it gives insights into how hacks are possible, as well as how Google sees things.
