Google’s Chrome, that’s Chrome the browser, not the OS (which is really just the browser with a Linux shim) has been updated to version 18.104.22.168 for its dev-channel release.
And no, that’s not the same build in that was in the public milestone Chromium OS last week. On the surface the new Chrome 22.214.171.124 looks like a typical Chrome bug fix release, which occur (nearly) every week.
Digging into the actual release, reveals at least one key bug fix for an item that could also show the future Chrome OS as being a haven for all media plug-ins, even those from rival Microsoft.
Chrome 126.96.36.199 addresses at least three different issues related to Microsoft Silverlight support in Chrome running on a Mac. Silverlight is Microsoft’s media framework for rich media content delivery.
That’s interesting for a number of reasons.
