Google is determined to make a dent in the Web browser’s world by upgrading their browser as much as they can. It was recently announced that version 220.127.116.11 is out in the wild. As you are probably aware, Chrome is developed in the direction of the speed of loading pages and security.
What is new in this new release? Let’s take a look under the hood:
- Fix pages failing to load with ‘waiting for cache…’ message. (Issue 4769)
- Fix ability to send mail with Yahoo! Mail (Issue 1058, 5852)
- Mark the SECOM Trust root certificates for EV (Issue 4985)
- Fix to not download outdated SafeBrowsing lists (Issue 5597)
- Fix some popups that were blocked even when the user requested them (Issue 6367)
- Fix a timing issue that prevented Gears from starting properly sometimes (Issue 4219)
- Security: Fix bad same-origin check that could lead to one frame being able to read or write the location of other frames (Issue6264)
- Filter out Set-Cookie responses in XMLHttpRequest responses.
- Add support for UA spoofing, and spoof Safari’s UA string when loading URLs from *.mail.live.com (to fix hotmail). (Issue 4111)
Google Chrome automatically updates to a newer version when one is released. The update process happens silently, whether or not you’re using the browser at the time. If Google Chrome is open at the time of the update, you must close the browser and restart for the new version to launch.
To see if a manual update is available or to check your version number, follow these steps:
- Click the Tools Menu (look for the blue wrench icon) .
- Select About Google Chrome.
- If there is an update available, an Update button will be available. Click the button and restart the browser to use the latest version.
If for any reason that doesn’t work, you can always download Google Chrome at its main Web site. You can find this link at the bottom of this post. Good Day.
