    Chrome holes are to become a weekly thing now I guess? Kinda feels like it. Good that they are fixed in a promt manner though.

    Assuming that the post quoted is on the up-and-up, this link may be useful to take the guesswork out of the publicised number of holes and the frequency of their fixing:

    Of course, the implication may have been that "Chrome holes" are a sign of incompetence and that maybe Chrome users should all move to something else.

    Thanks!

    Actually it was more an implication of browser immaturity which is undeniable, and possibly code rushing? Changing browsers every time a hole was discovered would end up in the user having a daily different browser in this day.

    Well, the updating process that Google implements makes it rather painless for a 100% trusting fanboy such as moi.

    As far as immaturity goes, who, among software companies, shall cast the first stone?;)
