Google Chrome Update for Today

March 17, 2011

Google has once again released a new version of its Chrome browser, 10.0.648.151, for all platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Chrome Frame).  The announcement, in the Chrome Releases blog, says that this update “blacklists a small number of HTTPS certificates”.  (These certificates are the cryptographic credentials used in establishing secure browsing sessions.)    Without more details on what has been blocked, it’s difficult to assess how important this update is; it’s worth having, but I know of no special urgency involved.

Windows users can obtain the new version via the built-in update mechanism (Help / About Google Chrome). Linux users should be able to get the new version using standard package update tools (e.g., apt-get, synaptic).
