Google says it will pay researchers $500 for each vulnerability they find in the Chrome browser and its underlying open source code, reports Computerworld. "Particularly severe or particularly clever" bugs could fetch rewards of $1,337 each.
According to The Register, the bounty program is for external researchers only, which pleases researcher Dino Dai Zovi:
It's a step in the right direction because it's compensating security researchers for their time in looking for vulnerabilities.
It's important to note that Chrome OS is not part of the program ... yet.
