What’s in the latest Chrome update? 10% faster page loads, more tab tweaks
Google last week released Chrome 85, boasting of several enhancements to the browser’s tab-based user interface and a 10% reduction in page load times.
The Mountain View, Calif. company also paid out more than $10,000 in bounties to security researchers who reported some of the 20 vulnerabilities addressed in Chrome 85. Two of the bugs were marked “High,” Google’s second-most-serious threat level. One of those flaws, which Google said was in the iOS version of Chrome, was reported by a member of Microsoft’s browser vulnerability research team. Microsoft now relies on the same core technologies — those produced by the Google-dominated Chromium project — for its Edge browser as Google does for Chrome.
