Google Chrome version 0.3.154.9 has been released.
You will automatically get updated in the next few days. You can open About Google Chrome (from the wrench menu) to get the update at any time.
This release fixes the top issues we’ve heard about from people using the Beta release, especially with plugins (the programs that show video on sites like YouTube).
This is a roll up of fixes that have previously been released to our Dev channel users. See http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel/release-notes for details on the changes that have been made since 0.2.149.30.
- This release fixes an issue with address spoofing in pop-ups. A site could convince a user to click a link to open a pop-up window. The window’s address bar could be manipulated to show a different address than the actual origin of the content.
Security rating: Medium. This flaw could be used to mislead people about the origin of a web site in order to get them to divulge sensitive information.
