On Tuesday, Google released another new version of Chrome: 76.0.3809.87. The announcement highlights sixteen vulnerabilities, discovered by security researchers not employed by Google, that are addressed in the new version. There are forty-three security fixes in all.
Google has chosen not to highlight any other changes in Chrome 76.0.3809.87, so if you want to know whether anything important changed, your only option is to read the thirteen thousand, five hundred and forty-three entries in the full change log. Good luck with that.
Chrome, uh, finds a way to keep itself updated, and fighting against that is a never-ending and ultimately pointless exercise. What you can do is check your version and thereby trigger an immediate update, by navigating Chrome’s ‘three vertical dots’ menu (at the top right) to
About Google Chrome. That way you don’t have to wait for Chrome to update itself, which happens “over the coming days/weeks” according to Google.
