Chrome 67.0.3396.62: security fixes

Yesterday’s release of Google Chrome brings its current version number to 67.0.3396.62. The new version is mostly about security fixes: there are thirty-four in all, none of which are flagged with Critical severity.

The change log for Chrome 67.0.3396.62 is a monster, listing 10855 changes in all. Don’t try viewing that page with an older computer or browser.

Google hasn’t seen fit to highlight any of the changes in Chrome 67.0.3396.62 in the release announcement, other than mentioning that Site Isolation may or may not be enabled. Site Isolation is a new security feature that’s being rolled out in stages.

As usual, the new Chrome version “will roll out over the coming days/weeks.” If that’s too vague for you (it is for me), an update can usually be triggered by navigating Chrome’s menu (the vertical ellipses icon at the top right) to Help > About Google Chrome.
