Get Paid to Find Bugs in Google Chrome

Google wants to improve Chrome and one of the ways it’s going to do that is by tapping into the general public with an incentive most people can appreciate: cold, hard cash. Find a bug in Chrome or Chromium, get paid between $500 and $1337. I see what you did there, Google!

The concept for an incentive program is not new, as Google notes in their blog post. It's based on a similar venture created by the folks at Mozilla, the organization behind the Firefox web browser. Like Mozilla, Google's rewards also start at $500 for most issues. The payment of $1337, the number a nod to the geeky internet slang called "leet speak," will be reserved only for critical bugs that would have had a major impact if left unpatched.
