Google has released a new major version, 29.0.1547.57, of its Chrome browser for all platforms: Mac OS X, Linux, Windows, and Chrome Frame. The new version incorporates some additional features:
- Your profile can be reset to its original state
- Suggestions offered when you type into the “Omnibox” will weight your recent activity more heavily
- There are several new APIs for applications and extensions
This release also includes fixes for 25 security vulnerabilities, including at least five rated by Google as High severity.
More information on the changes is available via 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.
