All Anonymous know how to do is DoS attacks and similar stuff, DoS don't fall within the rules, generally google chrome has a reputation for being secure - which doesn't mean it's has no exploits or vulnerabilities, but rather these vulnerabilities are difficult to exploit to use to take over the computer. In previous pwn2own competitions (a competition where hackers come around to hack software with cash prizes up for grabs) google-chrome generally has remained unhacked though this year it seems a group of french hackers were able to get past it's defences.
That aside,good luck to anyone who decides to try it out; if you get through you deserve every dime of the prize money

Update on the competition

Internet Explorer 9 has been taken down by French hackers, as at the time of posting, Google Chrome is still standing.

Lol! Google is only trying to stage manage a "contest" because they were the first browser to fall at Pwn2Own 2012, and they fell within 5 minutes or so of the start! grin grin grin grin grin

A bad place to be with all their hype. Its a secure browser, though.
