Should google release a website vulnerability scanner?

Google announced it's experimental Chrome extension, DOM Snitch, to expose vulnerabilities on websites. It's intended for site developers to test their sites from the browser end. As Radoslav Vasilev notes in the blog, most site testing tools focus on the server side of testing. DOM Snitch let's you see what's going on from the browser side.

I like this. I think it'll be pretty cool to go to websites and find out what kinds of vulnerabilties they have. Then again, I might find out things about my bank that would scare the bejesus out of me.
