Google Chrome version 0.4.154.25 has been released.
Users of the browser will automatically get updated in the
next few days. They can also open About Google Chrome
(from the wrench menu) to get the update at any time.
This is a roll up of fixes that have previously been
released to our Dev channel users. See
se-notes for details on the changes that have been made
- Bookmark manager with import/export.
Use the 'Customize and control Google Chrome' (wrench)
menu to open the Bookmark manager. You can search
bookmarks, create folders, and drag and drop bookmarks to
new locations. The Bookmark Manager's Tools menu lets you
export or import bookmarks.
- Privacy section in Options.
We grouped together all of the configuration options for
features that might send data to another service. Open the
wrench menu, click Options, and select the Under the Hood
- New blocked pop-up notification
The pop-up blocker formerly just minimized pop-up windows
to the lower right corner of the browser window, create
one 'constrained' window for each pop-up. Now, Google
Chrome displays one small notification in the corner that
shows the number of blocked pop-ups. A menu on the
notification lets you open a specific pop-up, if needed.
This release fixes an issue with downloaded HTML files
being able to read other files on your computer and send
them to sites on the Internet. We now prevent local files
from connecting to the network with XMLHttpRequest() and
also prompt you to confirm a download if it is an HTML
Severity: Moderate. If a user could be enticed to open a
downloaded HTML file, this flaw could be exploited to send
arbitrary files to an attacker.
