Paying for favorable test results is one thing, but if this part is actually true, it means Google is willing to jeopardize users to take over the browser market:
"Google paid for this report, and it's part of a marketing campaign that's probably aimed at Firefox to cut off Firefox's revenues, cut if off from the SafeBrowsing service, and then put out a report that says Firefox is less secure than Chrome."
Putting marketing spin into the testing -- using the word "Secured" versus "Secure" is also troubling if true...

Most of all, it sounds... evil.
"It appears Google has purposefully withheld important malware protection from its Safe Browsing feed [which Firefox and Safari both use] coinciding with its break from Firefox and release of the Google-funded report by Accuvant," NSS Labs wrote in a document published Tuesday (download PDF).

A security testing firm today said a recent report that named Google's Chrome as the most secured browser was flawed -- and part of a campaign by Google to undermine Mozilla's Firefox.. i also think that it is true.
