Google Releases Chrome 30

Yesterday, Google released version 30.0.1599.66 of its Chrome browser, for all platforms: Linux, Mac OS X , Windows, and Chrome Frame.  According to Google’s Release Announcement, the new version incorporates some new capabilities:

  • Easier searching by image
  • A number of new apps/extension APIs
  • Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance

The new release also incorporates 50 security fixes.  Google’s announcement highlights 19 of these; of these, Google rates 10 as High severity.  More details are available in the announcement.

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