Stable, Beta update: Yahoo! Mail and Security Fixes
Google Chrome's Beta and Stable channels have been updated to 188.8.131.52. (Note, we won't have a different release for the Beta channel until we have something Beta-worthy come out of the Dev channel in February.)
This release fixes issues with two popular webmail providers:
Sending mail from Yahoo! Mail works again.
Windows Live Hotmail now works. While the Hotmail team works on a proper fix, we're deploying a workaround that changes the user agent string that Google Chrome sends when requesting URLs that end with mail.live.com.
If you've been using the --user-agent switch to use Hotmail, you can remove the switch from your shortcuts with this release.
This release also includes two security updates.The release notes have the full list of changes.
