Google Updates Chrome to Third Beta

Google Wednesday released the third beta version of Chrome, the browser it introduced nearly two months ago, to fix a single security vulnerability and address several other problems.

Chrome will be automatically pushed to current users, said Mark Larson, the browser's product manager, in a note posted to a Google blog on Wednesday. Users who had set Chrome to receive the more frequent developer updates have had most of the fixes and changes in for some time, however.

If you are using Chrome, your browser will update itself in the next few days, or, if you are impatient, you can also just download the new version directly or go to "About Google Chrome" and see if the update is already available for you.


I hesitate to use even upgraded versions of Chrome, since my last experience using it (first version) left my computer compromised; have they fixed the security issues beyond all doubt?
