Google's Browser Interception Plugin For Chrome 26

An anonymous reader writes "Google has released a passive in-the-browser reconnaissance plugin, called the 'DOM Snitch'. By intercepting JavaScript calls to the browser infrastructure, it detects common cross-site scripting, mixed content and insecure DOM changes. The plugin displays the DOM modifications in real time so developers don't have to pause the application to run an outside debugger. It exports traces for easier collaboration and analysis."

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
