Stable Channel Update

The Stable channel has been updated to 28.0.1500.95 for Chrome Frame, Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Note: Access to bug details and links may be kept restricted until a majority of users are updated with a fix. This commonly occurs if the bug exists in a third party library that other projects similarly depend on, but haven’t yet fixed.


This update includes 11 security fixes. Below, we highlight some fixes that were either contributed by external researchers or particularly interesting. Please see the Chromium security page for more information.
