Google has been doing its bit to reinvent Chrome recently. However, the company just revealed an important reason why users should quit using the popular browser.
According to Forbes, in a recent report, Google engineers shared that an unsafe code within Chrome is the reason for seventy per cent of its security vulnerabilities and 125 of the 130 bugs discovered in the browser over the last year.
The engineers mainly blamed C and C++ programming languages because they do not come with “restrictions or warnings to prevent or alert developers when they’re making basic memory management errors. These new coding errors result in memory management vulnerabilities being introduced in applications.”
