Chrome 47 released

Google just announced another new version of Chrome. Version 47.0.2526.73 includes fixes for at least 41 security vulnerabilities.

Alas, the only complete list of changes is the change log (warning: clicking may crash your browser), which as usual includes so much detail that it’s a headache to parse. It’s thousands of lines long. I started reading it, and ten minutes later, my browser scrollbar still hadn’t moved. Presumably if this version included any noteworthy changes, Google would mention them in the release announcement.

Meanwhile, if you use Chrome, you should install the new version, because of the security fixes it contains.

About jrivett

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
