New Version of Chrome Boots and Runs Faster, Fixes Bugs
Chrome 24 also reportedly patches 24 vulnerabilities. Computerworld has noted:
"Five of the flaws were 'use-after-free' bugs, a type of memory allocation vulnerability that Chrome's security engineers have become adept at finding; and four, including one of the use-after-free vulnerabilities, that affected the browser's built-in PDF viewer."
This just goes to show that Google's bug bounty program--which pays researchers and individuals who uncover browser bugs--is working.
If you already use Chrome, the automatic updater should take you to the new version 24, otherwise it's worth downloading this new release.
