Google Chrome and the Chromium Sandbox

Chromium is finally out!! This is the moment I've been waiting for. I can now share the details of the project I've been working on: The Chromium sandbox.

As you know, Chromium is open source, so is its sandbox. I welcome everyone to take a look at the code, contribute patches, suggest improvements, find security bugs and most importantly, USE IT. Yes, the sandbox is not tied to chromium; it can be easily reused by any projects in need of a sandboxing solution. In the next posts I will present different parts of the Chromium sandbox in details, and I will be talking more about how to integrate the sandbox with any application.

Before going into the details, you must understand the high level architecture of Chromium, and what part of it is running in the sandbox. The best way to learn about this is to read the comic book!

The official website also has a lot of good information on Chromium and the sandbox, like our design document.

This is it for now! Try Google Chrome!

I'll be back with more information about the sandbox soon!
