Google Releases Chrome 15·0·874·102

October 25, 2011

Google has released a new stable version, 15·0·874·102, of its Chrome browser, for all platforms (Mac OS X, Linux, Windows, and Chrome Frame).  The new version incorporates a new “New Tab” page, as well as other improvements.  It also fixes 18 identified security vulnerabilities, 9 of which are rated as High severity.  More details are available in the release announcement.

Windows users  should  get the new version via the built-in automatic update mechanism; you can verify that your system has been updated by clicking on the tools menu (the little wrench), and then on “About Google Chrome”.  Linux users can get the updated package using their distros’ usual update tools.   Because of the security content of this release, I do recommend that you check your system to make sure that it has been updated.

The Official Google Blog has a description of the changes to the “New Tab” page.
