Google is updating the stable version of its Chrome browser to version 188.8.131.52.
The new release fixes two security issues and addresses a number of stability issues including a top crash condition and a bug that could have consumed 100 percent of a user’s CPU.
The other security issue fixed in Chrome 184.108.40.206 is a memory corruption condition in the Gears plugin. Gears (formerly known as Google Gears) is Google’s attempt at providing offline storage for website information.
Chrome 220.127.116.11 also fixes what I consider to be a very serious bug that could have eaten up 100 percent of a user’s CPU.
