Popular Internet browsing Google Chrome has received a major update. Many changes will be seen while browsing the Internet on Google. The company has released a new Chrome update for Windows, macOS, and Linux that fixes a total of 11 security issues. Of these vulnerabilities, the update patches a highly-severe zero-day bug that has already been exploited by attackers. 

The new Google update will consume less data while using the Chrome browser. Also, the quality of video calling will be better than before. Apart from this, Chrome users will get great support for PDF XFA. With this, Google Chrome has become more secure than before due to the security of users. Google will bring Google Floc for tracking users and ads, which is currently under the testing phase.

In addition to the zero-day bug, the Chrome version 98.0.4758.102 fixes four other ‘use-after-free’ security issues that are rated with high severity and were found in the browser’s Fire Manager, Webstore API, ANGLE, and GPU process. The update also patches another high-severity bug that was due to a ‘heap buffer overflow’ problem that existed in the Tab Groups.

Google is now disabling full URLs from fake websites for users’ safety. Now the big URLs of any site will not be visible, only their name will be seen. A disabled option will also be given in this feature. In Google Chrome 90, users will no longer see prompts and notifications on the website. This feature can also be disabled.
