If you want more information on what is going on with the Google Chrome Browser, then go to the Chrome release blog at: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/
As always I recommend that if you have Google Chrome on your computer or server that you upgrade the browser as soon as possible.  Since security exploits that may not be listed here, plus it’s always important to have the most up to date software on your computer to limit vulnerabilities.
