Google has released an update for Chrome 6, and is making bold performance claims about the next version of its browser.
The latest Chrome update, which arrives two weeks after Google launched version 6, fixes 10 security bugs – one of them critical.
The critical fix is for the Mac version of the browser, but the company hasn't revealed details of the flaw, saying it would be kept private “until a majority of our users are up to date with the fix”.
Google has paid out $4000 to vulnerability spotters that found the weaknesses.
Meanwhile, the company has also released details of next-generation Chrome 7's graphics performance under GPU acceleration.
The timing of the Google blog may well have been intended as a spoiler to Microsoft's launch of IE9, but the numbers posted are still impressive, with high frame rates in several benchmarks.
According to software engineer James Robinson, “these early numbers show up to 60-fold speed improvement over the current version of Google Chrome.
“With Google Chrome’s fast release cycles, we expect to be able to get these enhancements to users quickly and add new performance improvements over time,” he said.
