Other names include "XSS filter" or "Reflective XSS protection":


I can see that in the Chromium API it's also called the "XSS Auditor", but I 
agree that "XSSAuditing" sounds more consistent next to say 
"AcceleratedCompositing" instead of "Compositor".

Adam, are there any public docs for the auditing feature that we could point 
to from the docs and try to be consistent with in terms of the naming?

Or is "XSS Filter" or "XSS Filtering" a better name?
