Google Updates Chrome to 24.0.1312.56

January 22, 2013

Google today released a new version, 24.0.1312.56, of its Chrome browser for all platforms: Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Chrome Frame.  This is a bug fix release, and includes fixes for three specific problems:

  • Performance of mouse Wheel scrolling
  • Visited links bug
  • Windows installation as admin

The new version also includes fixes for five identified security vulnerabilities, three of which Google rates as High severity.  More details on the changes are available in the Release Announcement.

Because of the security content of this release, I recommend that you update your systems as soon as you conveniently can.   Windows and Mac users can get the new version via the built-in update mechanism; Linux users should check their distribution’s repositories for the new version.
