Chrome 77.0.3865.75

On September 10, Google released a new version of Chrome that includes fifty-two fixes for security vulnerabilities. The full change log lists almost seventeen thousand changes in all, so I’m going to assume that there’s nothing in there worth mentioning, aside from the security fixes. Presumably, if Google wanted to highlight any of the changes, they’d be outlined in the official release notes for Chrome 77.0.3865.75.

As is often the case with Chrome security vulnerabilities, many of those addressed in Chrome 77.0.3865.75 were discovered and reported by independent security researchers. There’s a list of those fine folks in the release notes, along with the rewards they earned from Google for their work.

To update Chrome, click its ‘three dots’ menu and navigate to Help > About Google Chrome. If there’s a newer version than the one you’re running, you should see an update link.
