Google Chrome Update

by Chrome Blog on September 19, 2008

Google has made an update available for Chrome, the upgrade can be accessed by clicking the Wrench Icon then by going to ‘About Google Chrome’. Or if you aren’t running Chrome yet, you can download Google Chrome by visiting the Chrome Download Page

The update fixes several bugs along with some more security thrown in for good measure. One fix was to prevent Chrome from indexing the content of secure pages such as banking information which could later be obtained by anyone using your Chrome installation.

The changes in

r1927Stop adding content from HTTPS sites to the searchable index.

Google Chrome keeps a searchable history of pages you visit. This history is only stored locally on your computer. Previously, this searchable history included the text from secure sites, such as your online bank (any sites using SSL for security). Google Chrome no longer saves text from secure pages in its local history. The address bar and local history search page will no longer find data from secure sites you have visited.

Note: After installing the update, you may have to clear your browsing history to remove copies of secure pages indexed prior to the update.

r1978Don’t send sensitive URLs to search suggest services.

Google Chrome stops sending data to a suggest service if the typed URL:

  • Contains a username:password field (http://username:password@example.com/)
  • Has query parameters (the trailing ?param=data following the URL)
  • Is an https URL with any path component (any part following the hostname, such as /path in https://www.example.com/path)

Other Fixes:

r1848, r1943 r2003 – Fixes to the Google Chrome updater to make updates more reliable.

r1859 – Fix problems with Flash not playing video if too many connections are opened. For example, using the slider to advance video on YouTube could cause video to stop playing.

r2059 – Allow JavaScript to communicate with Java applets. Fixes bug 580.

r1299 – JavaScript: Dispatch context menu events after mouseup events. This fixes the right-click menu not working on Google Spreadsheets. Fixes bug 745.

r1692 – Fix crashes with some plugins –3dvia was the most widely reported– when they return an error for NPN_GetValue. Fixes bug 493.

it’s funny, the more i use Chrome (for windows), the more unstable it seems to get… crashes a lot more, can’t handle sites with flash, hangs every time i close a tab… all that to say, i’m switching back to Firefox

movie fan – Chrome is still only a very early Beta release, and really it’s not stable or functional enough for a lot of people to use as their primary browser despite many people doing so.

I personally don’t have it set as my default browser yet either, but that’s because i rely on far too many Firefox extensions when working rather than because of Chrome’s instability.

It sounds like your Chrome issues may be specific to your PC and/or other applications installed on it causing conflict because this isn’t happening to most people.

Have you tried removing Chrome and starting off with a fresh install?

I heard about this update for Chrome over at Cutts’ blog. Looks like they patched a bunch of Chrome security issues with it. Very nice!

Well, at least I use Chrome… because it appears to me that it is actually less hard on the RAM use than Firefox.

My computer sucks.

Anyway, I believe I got this update automatically and noticed that my browser theme had been set back to default (I used black). Can I just swap the black theme’s DLL file with the new version’s DLL file without expecting too much trouble?

I Can’t seem to get any downloaded theme .DLL to work since the latest update? is this a security thing or is there a new place i need to put the DLL?

El mejor web-browser que vi….era fanatico de firefox, pero cuando instale chrome….es mucho mas sencillo y mas rapido, ahora me gustaria que empezaran a ver el tema del mouse en algun fix-update, ya que me manejo mucho con la ruedita del mouse para subir y bajar la pagina que estoy viendo….Sigan actualizandoló!!!!!!!

When i try to increase the volume on YouTube the CPU goes to 100% and I must wait 30 to 50 seconds because everything is freezed. Isn’t YouTube in Google family? Why all these problems with this super browser in this super videosite?

1) Auto-Hide task bar in Windows Vista will not appear when moving mouse down.
2) Need a way to QUICKLY change text size without using keyboard. Internet Explorer has a percent (%) icon in bottom right corner. Chrome requires you to click on several icons to adjust text (without keyboard)
3) Need a way to enlarge photos. Internet Explorer allows you to hit Control and the up or down arrows to adjust text/pictures. THIS DOES NOT WORK IN CHROME FOR PICTURES!

Tony, Hold CTRL + Scroll Thats the fastest way to immidiately Change Text Size

10 Chrome lover 10.23.08 at 2:51 am

Holy Sh¨¨ i love Chrome. I havent had any crashes since i installed it. (im running Vista). And BTW its SUPER FAST.

I love chrome…….but I’m having a problem.
Whenever I click on Youtube it says that either my Java applet is off or my Adobe Flash Player is not up to date. This is not true cause I can view videos through Internet Explorer.

12 Angel 11.20.08 at 12:15 am

i cant install the themes they rnt working on my pc any suggestions.

13 movie fan 11.21.08 at 8:29 pm

I hesitate to use even upgraded versions of Chrome, since my last experience using it (first version) left my computer compromised; have they fixed the security issues beyond all doubt?

14 Garaa 12.07.08 at 4:55 am

I am One Now Of Chrome Fan I Try It I Found It Great One I Hope To Keep In Progras

I have had mostly good luck with Google Chrome. I do have some problems with crashes but they are few. I compaired firefox to Google chrome and firefox does not work on my system. I installed it twice and firefox crashed everytime I used it. Google chrome is alot more stable even more than Internet explorer 8.

I would like to have a full screen option with Chrome on XP service pack 3. Need to fix some of the problems with flash players.

I give Google Chrome 4 out of 5 stars!

It still won’t display the most emailed photos on My Yahoo. After scrolling through a few it hangs and won’t scroll or bring up any photos.

18 Josh 05.11.09 at 7:16 pm

Google Chrome Rules. I think its better than Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox 3

19 Smirgliik 06.08.09 at 2:29 pm
