Safe Web Practices With Googles "Browser Security Handbook"

Web Browsers, Firefox, Opra, Chrome, IE are part of our day to day lives now. We even look at our phones through tiny browsers and make sure that the new phone has one.
Some people fight for browsers and some make them, better, safer everyday. Developers and webmasters try hard to keep up with challenges of being compatible with all the browsers. There are lot of camps of browser alliances and I belong to a few of them! I use Chrome and Firefox most of the time.
But this is about safe web practices, with the help of Google security folks, who have written a handbook for general public, users and developers alike!. Thanks G.
"In hopes of helping to make the Web a safer place, we decided to release our Browser Security Handbook to the general public. This 60-page document provides a comprehensive comparison of a broad set of security features and characteristics in commonly used browsers, along with (hopefully) useful commentary and implementation tips for application developers who need to rely on these mechanisms, as well as engineering teams working on future browser-side security enhancements."
