Stable Channel Update

EDIT 23-Mar-10 (mal): Remove "[33572] Medium HTTP headers processed before SafeBrowsing check" from security issues fixed. This is not fixed in this release.

The stable channel has been updated to for Windows, and includes the following features and security fixes (since 4.0):

  • Translate infobar.
  • Privacy features: content settings (cookies, images, JavaScript, plug-ins, pop-ups).
  • Disabling experimental new anti-reflected-XSS feature called "XSS Auditor". The feature is still experimental, and we're disabling it while we look into some serious performance issues in rare cases. Please see this post for more details about what the XSS Auditor is.

Please see this feature announcment post for more info about translate and privacy.

Security Fixes and rewards:
Please see the Chromium security page for more detail. Note that the referenced bugs may be kept private until a majority of our users are up to date with the fix.

Congratulations to Sergey Glazunov on receiving the first $1337 Chromium Security Reward for bug 35724.

Great Job on updates, love the speed of Chrome. However, still waiting for Print Selection to come around.

@Blewby, the fixed to print selection is provided only for the version 6 of the browser.

Don't ask me why....

You have blown my Internet Banking Service out of the water. Don't you think it would have been a good idea to let NatWest Online Banking know you were updating your software. Please don't get like the other 'you know who' browser and get too arrogant. I shall download Opera until you bring out a fix! You have been my browser of choice since launch. Ex-IBM softie.

There is still probably a small problem regarding styling. Default look ok, but Grayscale looks like this:

When oh when will there be a Google Toolbar addon for Chrome? I travel all over the world and work in the net and I must have the security of the portable Bookmarks. I love Chrome but I cannot use it because I must be able to keep my bookmarks with me. Sad....

How can one determine the version of Chrome without running it? When I right-click chrome.exe and select Properties, the version number listed is regardless of which version it actually is. I'm trying to get a handle on the status of chrome versions installed on my network. By file size and date it is apparent that there are multiple version out there (some doubtless vulnerable) but no way for me to derive the version number without going to each PC and launching Chrome.
