    Security Enhanced (SE) Android is a project to identify and address critical gaps in the security of Android. Initially, the SE Android project is enabling the use of SELinux in Android in order to limit the damage that can be done by flawed or malicious apps and in order to enforce separation guarantees between apps. However, the scope of the SE Android project is not limited to SELinux.

    Pretty sure I've posted this in a topic somewhere on here but it may have been another forum.

    Nice to see them beefing up Chrome but I don't think it will help.
