Google has released the first update to Chrome since the browser came out of beta just days ago. In a week dominated by browser patches, this latest update addresses over thirty issues of varying severity.
One of the biggest complaints with Chrome thus far has been its incompatibility with the Web-based Hotmail client. Several users, including myself, were unable to compose Hotmail messages while using Chrome since the email's body section became unavailable. The problem was supposedly fixed in this latest update, but that does not appear to be the case. I am still experiencing the same behavior and have read similar complaints from others on various forums. Perhaps Google jumped the gun here and I would not be surprised to see another update released shortly.
Since none of the defects fixed are directly related to security, the urgency in installing this Chrome update is not very high. However, I still recommend upgrading to Chrome 188.8.131.52 as soon as possible to ensure the best browsing experience.(Photo © Google)
