Google Chrome gets cranked to 11, improves XSS Auditor

From the ‘Strength in Numbers‘ files:

Google’s open source Chrome browser is revving up — again. Chrome 11 dev-channel is now out as Chrome 10 is now being promoted to Beta.

At this early stage of Chrome 11, the most notable new features is, yet another – new version of the V8 JavaScript engine. Chrome 11 marks the debut of V8 version which adds more performance. Speaking of JavaScript performance.

JavaScript performance is also the key thing that Chrome 10 beta users will notice as well thanks to an improved Crankshaft. Crankshaft is a JavaScript accelerator that first debuted in a December dev-channel build of Chrome 10.

The other big new item in Chrome 11 is an improved XSS Auditor. This is a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) protection feature and when it’s complete will be a major step forward for Chrome browser security.
