Chrome(ium) fixed for Windows 7 x64 Beta

The latest nightly builds of Chromium now includes a fix for the sandboxing issues experienced on Windows 7 x64 Beta, and the –no-sandbox hack is no longer needed and security and stability is restored. I’m certain this fix will make it into the developer, beta and release channels soon.

Windows 7 x64 Beta 1 and Google Chrome

If you you’ve tried to install Google Chrome v1.0 on Windows 7 x64 Beta 1 you have seen a number of warnings about compatibility, and Chrome crashes whenever you load a page. There are some problems with the Chrome sandboxing model and Windows 7 x64, so if you run Chrome with the parameter –no-sandbox everything should work fine.

Happy testing :)

Internet Explorer HttpOnly Cookie extension implemented in all major browsers
Wednesday, 31 December 2008 09:36:17 UTC ( Browsers )

The WebKit engine was recently enhanced with the HttpOnly Cookie feature originally introduced in Internet Explorer. This is a security feature that restricts access to certain cookies making them only available for HTTP requests and not from JavaScript running within the browser; a feature originally developed to help with XSS attacks.

The next versions of Safari and Google Chrome will most likely include these updated bits completing the browser lineup as Internet Explorer, FireFox and Opera already have this feature implemented.

Nice to see innovation being accepted and implemented across the board.
