Google also announced Tuesday that it will release an extension for its Chrome browser called End to End that will provide that higher level of security, using the OpenPGP standard.

Initially it is releasing only the source code for an alpha version of the tool. It wants the security community to test it and make sure it's rock solid. After that, Google will make End to End available in the Chrome Web Store.
