chrome horn

A car's front bumper when used to nudge or hit the car in front of it, either in retaliation or (in stock car racing) to inform the second car's driver that the first intends to pass. Always be considerate when changing lanes in front of other cars, as aggressive drivers may feel inclined to use their chrome horns to signal their displeasure. Some really aggressive driving by Roberts; he's been putting that chrome horn to use today!

Responding to Kember complaints, head of Chrome security technology, Justin Schuh, said that even if the browser supported a master password, that wouldn't stop a hacker with physical access to a victim's computer from installing malware and obtaining passwords.
Referring to Chrome's mass-market appeal and its consumers, Kember added: "They don't know it works like this.
When a new password is entered while using the browser, OS X states that Chrome "wants to use your confidential your keychain.
By using language like 'confidential' and referring to OS X's master password-protected Keychain application, the message indicates that the new password will be safe, and Chrome's knowledge of it will be as secure as Keychain, but this is not the case.
Cluley says "it seems very odd" that Chrome insists users import passwords along with their bookmarks from other browsers, especially as Chrome "isn't offering the most rudimentary level of protection...Google's handling of the situation seems particularly lax."
